Lyrics

I Thought I Heard a Train

©Tom Mason & Billy Alcorn, Air Deluxe Music, BMI

 

 A candle casts a lonesome shadow

From the table by the bed

Like the curtains in the window

I’m just hanging by a thread

Outside the wind is moaning

A sad and soft refrain

And off somewhere in the distance

I Thought I Heard a Train

 

Chorus:

I Thought I Heard a Train

Off somewhere in the night

Through the darkness and the pain

I can almost see the light

Like the sweet sound of salvation

Come to carry me away

To an unknown destination

I Thought I Heard a Train

 

I will dry these tears of sorrow 

Bring this heartache to an end

And with the power of a freight train

Make these wheels roll again

Outside the sun is rising

Shining through the pouring rain

And off somewhere in the distance

I Thought I Heard a Train
