Do you remember when they said that they'd blow our whole world into oblivion?
And that the war was a long way away and anyway who gives a shit for your opinion?
I'm comin' clean I swear my dear I would, be lost without it now
and when my coat was stinkin' that evil smoke, you thought my train got lost

Hey, somebody bombed the train
they blew it right off of the rails
so I can't see you today

And the sailors, they all got out ok
and made it back to great lakes
sneakin' whiskey back onto their base

Hey, has anybody heard from Shane?
I haven't seen him in days
I hope he's not found near the rails

And Julie, she loved to look at the trains
and round out paintin' her nails
in her cutoffs next to the rails

And the switchmen, they all knew her by name
they waited for her on their breaks
to check out her legs and her nails

In Waukegan, there lies the county jail
but I don't have the bail
has anybody here seen Shane?

Hey, somebody bombed the train
they blew it right off of the rails
so I can't see you today

Hey, somebody blew up the train!
they knocked it right off of the tracks
Has anybody here seen Shane?
Cuz somebody's gotta pay

somebody's gotta pay
somebody's gotta pay
somebody's gotta pay
somebody's gotta pay
somebody's gotta pay
