The song I wrote leaving my parents' hometown for the last time

Lyrics

Texarkana Trains

We’re gonna leave this town
At night the trains go round
and the old ones they get older, frail and full of fear
We promised them and God that we would stay right here
Oh we held their sweet hands, we cried rivers of tears

CHORUS:
I miss the sound of Texarkana trains
Come into the station, go back out again
Texarkana trains

We’re gonna leave this town
Packed up and westward bound
‘Cause the old ones, they all left us, flew back to the Lord
No one in East Texas needs us anymore
So it’s one last look around, one last close the door
CHORUS

We’re gonna leave this town
We’re on the telephone
In the desert children were calling out our names
So we flew out to them like Texarkana trains

We live our lives like Texarkana trains
Come into the station, go back out again
Cause we can’t stay, we fade away like
Texarkana trains
No we can’t stay, we fade away like
Texarkana Trains
