Comment on the disk holder:
"Peggy Lee's wistful Waitin' For The Train To Come In, which touched a
responsive chord in many America women waiting, like Peggy, for their guys
to come home."

Waitin' for the train to come in
Waitin' for my man to come home
I've counted every minute of each live-long day
Been so melancholy since he went away

I've shed a million teardrops or more
Waitin' for the one I adore
I'm waitin' in the depot by the railroad track
Lookin' for the choo-choo train that brings him back

I'm waitin' for my life to begin
Waitin' for the train to come in
I'm waitin' in the depot by the railroad track
Lookin' for the choo-choo train that brings him back

I'm waitin' for my life to begin
Waitin' for the train to come in
Waiting... waiting... I'm waitin' for the train to come in.
