Packin' my suitcase writin' a tear stained good-bye note 
Sayin' so long to a love gone wrong and that's all she wrote 
Leavin' behind what once was mine with sad regrets 
But it's all gone now and I'm leavin' town on the Heartbreak Express 

Walkin in the rain with a heart full of pain to the train depot 
The only things that's gonna keep me warm now is my overcoat 
Lost and lonely waitin' in line at the ticket desk 
Hey mister won't you give me a one-way ticket on the Heartbreak Express 

I'm gonna roll on down the line 
I'm gonna go so far I'm gonna get it off my mind 
It hurts to know it ain't enough when you give your best 
Got a ticket to ride and I'm leavin' tonight on the Heartbreak Express 

Oh, I couldn't hold a candle to the flaming beauty that caught his eye 
It's killin' me now but I won't stay around and let him watch me die 
Oh, it just goes to show you never do know 'cause I never would'a guessed 
I'd be sittin' here now on a train sorrow bound called the Heartbreak Express 

I'm gonna roll on down the line 
I'm gonna go so far I'm gonna get it off my mind 
Maybe someday, somewhere, someway I will forget 
But there's no goin' back so roll down the track you ole Heartbreak Express 
Feelin' alone while a low whistle moans on the Heartbreak Express

Roll on, roll on down the line
I'm gonna get it off my mind 
Roll on, roll on, roll on down the line
Got a ticket to ride so I'm leavin' tonight on the Heartbreak Express

Roll on, roll on, roll on
