Well, I'm sittin' here beside the railroad track,
And I'm waitin' for that train to bring her back.
If she's not on the five-nineteen,
Then I'm gonna know what sorrow means,
And I'm gonna cry, cry, cry,
All the way home.

All the way home,
All the way home,
Yes, I'm gonna cry, cry, cry,
All the way home.

Well, her daddy never liked me, this he said.
And he could not get it through his old grey head
That I loved his daughter so,
I did not mean to see her go.
Now I'm gonna cry, cry, cry,
All the way home.

All the way home,
All the way home,
Yes, I'm gonna cry, cry, cry,
All the way home.

    General CommentThey're making fun of the Beatles 'The One After 909', I think.

    General CommentThis song is also ironic in that it would be percieved widely as better than what music they were currently playing, despite David and Nigel's condemnation and insultation (is that a word? it is now.) of the song in its simplicity.
