The Everly Brothers - Milk Train
A.
Milk Train

Lyrics:

There was mornin’ train used to come on through
When this sleepy town was alive
And ever’ Sunday we would come and see
Some mighty fancy people arrive
Oh they’d arrive
Aboard the milk train
(La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la)

There was a well dressed lady from the city
Used to always give me her smile
And she looked so fine
She was sweet and kind
She let me get to know her awhile
Oh for a little while

Oh when the milk train
Used to rumble my shack (Milk train)
Used to stop outside o’ my door
But now the milk train
Doesn’t come by here any more
(La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la)

Now I still live in that rail-road shack
And I wander down that rusty old track
Like a lonely old-timer out of my mind
Lookin’ for that lady who was sweet and kind to me

When the milk train
Used to rumble my shack (Milk train)
Used to stop outside o’ my door
But now the milk train
Doesn’t stop by here any more
(La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la)

Now the only thing to come on through
Is a Jimmy-John now and then
And I dream of the day
She’ll come back this way
And let me get to know her again
Oh, like way back when

When the milk train
Used to rumble my shack (Milk train)
Used to stop outside o’ my door
But now the milk train
Doesn’t come by here any more
(La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la)

Oh, the milk train
Used to rumble my shack (Milk train)
Used to stop outside o’ my door
But now the milk train
Doesn’t come here any more
(La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la)

Oh the milk train…
