Rickie Lee Jones

Here I'm going

Wlakin' with my baby in my arms

'Cuz I am in the wrong end of the eight ball black

And the devil, see, he's right behind us

And this worker said she's gonna take my little baby

My little angel back

But they won't getcha,

'Cuz I'm right here witcha

On the night train

Swing low, Saint Cadillac

Tearin' down the alley

And I'm reachin' so high for ya

Don't let 'em take me back

Broken like valiums and chumps in the rain

That cry and quiver

When a blue horizon is sleeping in the station

With a ticket for a train

Surely mine will deliver me there

Here she comes ...

I'm safe here with you

On the night train

Oh mamma, mamma,

Concrete is wheeling by

Down at the end of a lullaby

On the night train
