Lyrics

Cryin' Shame

Written By: Ron Harmon

Stop wasting my time – you make things complicated.
I’ll be alright just say what’s on your mind.
It’s not what you say, it’s in the way you say it.
I’d like to leave it all behind.
‘Cause you don’t know what you’re doing
on a road that leads to nowhere

It’s a cryin’ shame your life is so darn crazy.
It’s a cryin’ shame you need someone to blame.
It’s a cryin’ shame that you are fat and lazy.
Cigarettes and beer won’t wipe away your tears
- it’s a cryin’ shame

Get drunk and get high, party ‘til you’re wasted –
Try to erase some old memory.
Everything you want, you’re everything I hated –
Everything I never wanted to be,
and I don’t know where you going
and I won’t know until you get there

It’s a cryin’ shame your life is so darn crazy.
It’s a cryin’ shame you need someone to blame.
It’s a cryin’ shame that you are fat and lazy.
Cigarettes and beer won’t wipe away your tears
- it’s a cryin’ shame

It’s a cryin’ shame your life is so darn crazy.
It’s a cryin’ shame you need someone to blame.
It’s a cryin’ shame that you are fat and lazy.
Cigarettes and beer won’t wipe away your tears
Or return your wasted years
- it’s a cryin’ shame

Broken Down

Written By: Ron Harmon


Broken down, broken heart, flesh and bone try so hard. Blood and water, hurt and pain. I forgave myself for mistakes I made. Broken down – there are things I don’t talk about (there are things that haunt me). Life is hard, it will toss you around, throw you down. Holding on – cause hope will last forever, wrap your hands around it.

Reaching for a hand that saves keeps me from having my own way. I feel useless when I am weak so take the worthless and only leave me broken down, things I never talk about (things that I don’t speak of). Life is hard – it will chew you up, spew you out. Don’t give up cause hope will last forever, hope will last forever – wrap your hands around it.

I Think I'll Take the Train

Written By: Ron Harmon

Traveling down these lonesome railroad tracks.
Leaving home ain't never coming back.
Heading out in sure desperation.
Girl back home ­ she ruined my reputation.
Guess I’m on my own, I think I’ll take the train.

Riding in this lonesome, lonesome train.
Miles of track now flowing through my brain.
Up with the sun caught the train at the Downtown Station.
Packed my bags for no set destination.
I got no place to go I think I’ll take the train.

Traveling down these lonesome railroad tracks.
Wonder if she’d ever take me back?
Although I don’t need no complications,
I’d be back with no hesitation.
If she’d take me back I think I’d take the train.
