up
And I watched a thousand people go home from work, yeah

Hangin' on the corner of 52nd and Broadway
Cars passin' by but none of them seem to go my
Ran into three Puerto Ricans
These girls took us to the fun house
Where we played a lonely pinball machine 

Hangin' on the corner of 52nd
on out to me at midnight train
Midnight train midnight train I know you've always been on time
But just as once I wish you'd pass this town on by
Cause
sigh from the decks
Saw a train set the night on fire
Smelled the spring on the smoky wind
Dirty old town, dirty old town

I'm going to take a good
They've tied your hands and tied your feet
And the street is narrow
A nowhere lane, a nowhere train for Elaine, Elaine, Elaine  
Elaine, Elaine, Elaine,
about other things?
Living on the street, hanging by a string
Letting people take away your name

Letting people push you into your grave
What you
for you
So shake it away, so shake away your street life
And hook up to the train
Oh, hook up to the night train
Hook it up, hook up to the, hook up
Waiting on a train 
I smoked my last cigarette 
Standing in out of the rain 
There's a cool wind blowin' 
Down the alley by the depot 
Amtrak down
a siren from the docks
Saw a train set the night on fire
Smelled the Spring on the smokey wind
Dirty old town
Dirty old town

I'm gonna take me a good
the street
Now every shadow that I meet
They all know my name
And they whisper
"What's a matter hon
Don't you know you're riding on the ghost train
You will wait in the widows peak
And while you watch the ships come in
I will take the early train

And I will take the back streets
Down to New
the whistles blowing loud

When I hit the station
I'll take a taxi to the corner
I'm gonna meet him by a street car
Name of what-cha-ma-call-it

My
late to catch my southbound train
Oh, I'm gonna call my cousin Libby
She will be waiting by the tracks when I roll in
I'm gonna roll across America
There's blacks with knives and whites with guns
fighting in Howard Beach
There's no such thing as human rights
when you walk the N.Y. streets
Take the train
Oh you have run as far as you can go
They've tied your fingers to rails of stars
Can you hear the whistle blow?
There's is no one
all you know we need each other
It's by design that we're in it together

(chorus) 2
Take a ride through the streets of gold
On a train that's
sigh from the decks
Saw a train set the night on fire
Smelled the spring on the smoky wind
Dirty old town, dirty old town
I'm going to take a good
of the street
Fat gypsy lady smacks the window pane
Some guy walks by suspended by the sky

Takes more imagination
When every thing's remote control
For me
clutter in the gutter
Take a look and see

No escaping pain
You belong to me
Clinging on to life
By the skin o'my teeth

No escaping pain
You belong to me
Oh oh, I can't even take it in
Oh oh, I can't even take it in
Oh oh, I left my heart in metropolis

So far apart, I checked but the coast was
never heard a noise a whole lot louder than a freight train
I get scared sometimes just standing here along the street
Concrete concrete everywhere I
People clutter in the gutter
Take a look and see

[Chorus]
No escaping pain
You belong to me
Clinging on to life
By the skin o' my teeth

My blood
Oh oh, I can't even take it in
Oh oh, I can't even take it in
Oh oh, I left my heart in Metropolis

So far apart, I check that the coast was clear,
I
The words don't come to me so easily
The words don't come to me so easily

Most days I take the train
From here to there
Then back to here
Friends are
Take the phone
It's out there all alone
Left it on the table where it was
Keep the car
The keys are in the front
It's out there on the street right
