Charleston Railroad Tavern

Chorus
Charleston Railroad Tavern
Sittlin' up 'til I'm blind
She left on that 5-0-9
Eastern standard blue time.
 
Verse 1
My baby left this evening
I'd changed all this if I could
But her train just pulled out of sight
I know she's gone for good.
 
Chorus
So Charleston Railroad Tavern
Sittlin' up 'til I'm blind
She left on that 5-0-9
Eastern standard blue time.
 
Verse 2
I stayed out so many nights
The crowd downtown was fun
But her love had turned to hate
Before I knew the harm I'd done.
 
Verse 3
Now the laughing tavern crowd is gone
I'm so lonesome I could die
The man just said it's closing time
Guess I'll go home and cry.
 
Chorus
So Charleston Railroad Tavern
Sittlin' up 'til I'm blind
She left on that 5-0-9
Eastern standard blue time
 
Thanks!
