train tracks lyrics – izzy stradlin

drunk and stoned
took a hit down by the train track
i hear the whistle’s song
this broken kid…

he made a big dash
he learnt quick to get along
a change of time
packed up and left
goodbye the train track
you’re lucky if i do
we’ll go west
and get some big cash
we’re lookin’ back to see the way
just keep a movin’

you keep away i say
you got to change your backdrop
you got to keep a base
she was tall, a lookin’ up
from the bottom of a beer gl*ss
it’s too insane, in my blood
my hand is showin’ like a road map
so i got on to catch a breeze
i hated to go back
but when i think
of all those times i just love the highlife
just keep a rollin’ just
keep a movin’ i say
you got to change your backdrop
you got to keep a base

i said, oh it’s so clear
oh it’s so clear
oh it’s so clear

said, i said

if you crawl to get on up
you’re gonna level and get there
the feeling’s gone
and you better get cleaned up
start thinkin’ of a new thing
’cause now i see the other said
i done paid back, yes i did
this ain’t livin’ on a train track
on a train track
