Silver train is coming, think I want to get on now
Oh yeah

Silver rain is falling, falling all around my house
Oh yeah

And I did not know her name
But I sure loved the way that she laughed and took my money
And I did not know her name
But I sure loved the way that she laughed and called me Honey

Silver rain is falling, falling all around my house
Oh yeah
Silver bells is ringing, ringing all around my house
Ding dong, oh yeah

I'm going home on a southbound train with a song in my mouth

Silver train is running, think I want to get on now
Oh yeah

Silver train is coming, think I want to get on now
Oh yeah
Silver train is coming, think I'm going to get on board
Oh yeah
