I Married The Conductor
Lyrics
When I was a young girl
Lonely and blue
I met a conductor
He said baby I love you
Brought me to the alter
There was joy in my tears
I married the conductor
But I love the engineer

He'd ride my train all night
Then go to work at 7
Come back home again
We'd train on up to heaven
Little did I know
The end was near
I married the conductor
But I love the engineer

Soon he wasn't coming home
Said he was working late
I didn't know what to do
So all I did was wait
Maybe I thought too much
Staring in to the mirror
I married the conductor
But I love the engineer

I went down to the station
To bring him his meal
His clothes was undone
There was nothing to conceal
Who's that with you
Is that laughter I hear
I married the conductor
But I love the engineer

I didn't do you wrong
I knew he was lying
When I left the station
Lord I was crying
No, no, no
It's not what it looks like my dear
I married the conductor
But I love the engineer

A young man came along
His name is Casey Jones
I won't do you wrong
Let me take you home
One look in his eyes
And it was clear
I married the conductor
But I love the engineer

I went home with him
Now I only ride his train
My conductor pulled out his watch
Said it's time to leave again
Honey I punched your ticket
Get out of here
I married the conductor
But I love the engineer
