Paroles de la chanson musique lyrics texte Desperados Waiting for a Train Lyrics

Jerry Jeff Walker - Desperados Waiting for a Train Songtext I played the Red River Valley
Hed sit in the kitchen and cry
Run his fingers through seventy years of livin
"I wonder, Lord, has every well Ive drilled gone dry?"
We were friends, me and this old man
Like desperados waitin for a train
Desperados waitin for a train

Hes a drifter, a driller of oil wells
Hes an old school man of the world
Taught me how to drive his car when he was too drunk to
And hed wink and give me money for the girls
And our lives were like, some old Western movie
Like desperados waitin for a train
Like desperados waitin for a train

From the time that I could walk hed take me with him
To a bar called the Green Frog Cafe
There was old men with beer guts and dominoes
Lying bout their lives while they played
I was just a kid, they all called me "Sidekick"
Just like desperados waitin for a train
Like desperados waitin for a train

One day I looked up and hes pushin eighty
Hes got brown tobacco stains all down his chin
To me he was a hero of this country
So whys he all dressed up like them old men
Drinkin beer and playin Moon and Forty-two
Like desperados waitin for a train
Desperados waitin for a train

The day before he died I went to see him
I was grown and he was almost gone.
So we closed our eyes and dreamed us up a kitchen
And sang one more verse to that old song
Come on, Jack, that son-of-a-bitch is comin

Desperados waitin for a train
Desperados waitin for a train.
