WELL SOMEBODY ROBBED THE GLENDALE TRAIN
THIS MORNIN’ AT HALF-PAST NINE
SOMEBODY ROBBED THE GLENDALE TRAIN
AND I SWEAR I AIN’T LYIN’
THEY MADE CLEAN OFF WITH SIXTEEN G’S
AND LEFT TWO MEN LYING COLD
SOMEBODY ROBBED THE GLENDALE TRAIN
AND THEY MADE OFF WITH THE GOLD

NOW CHARLIE JONES WAS THE ENGINEER
HE HAD TWENTY YEARS ON THE LINE
HE KISSED HIS WIFE AT THE STATION GATE
THIS MORNING AT SIX THIRTY-FIVE
NOW EVERYTHING WENT FINE ‘TIL HALF PAST-NINE
THEN CHARLIE LOOKED UP AND HE SAW
THERE WAS MEN ON HORSES MEN WITH GUNS
AND NO SIGN OF THE LAW

AND SOMEBODY ROBBED THE GLENDALE TRAIN
THIS MORNIN’ AT HALF-PAST NINE
SOMEBODY ROBBED THE GLENDALE TRAIN
AND I SWEAR I ain’t LYIN’
THEY MADE CLEAN OFF WITH SIXTEEN G’S
AND LEFT TWO MEN LYING COLD
SOMEBODY ROBBED THE GLENDALE TRAIN
AND THEY MADE OFF WITH THE GOLD

AMOS WHITE WAS THE BAGGAGE MAN
AND HE DEARLY LOVED HIS JOB
THE COMPANY THEY REWARDED HIM
WITH A GOLDEN WATCH AND FOB
WELL AMOS HE WAS A’MARKIN’ TIME
WHEN THE DOOR BLEW OFF HIS CAR
THEY FOUND AMOS WHITE IN FIFTEEN PIECES
FIFTEEN MILES APART

Lyrics — favorite for 4th of July

th 2 (1).jpeg

She’s waiting for me
When I get home from work
Oh but things just ain’t the same
She turns out the lights
And she cries in the dark
Won’t answer when I call her name
On the stairs I smoke a cigarette alone
Mexican kids are shooting fireworks below

Hey baby
It’s the fourth of July
Hey baby
It’s the fourth of July

She gives me her cheek
Oh but I want her lips
And I don’t have the strength to go
On the lost side of town
In a dark apartment
We gave up trying so long ago

And on the stairs I smoke a cigarette alone
The Mexican kids are shooting fireworks below
And hey baby
It’s the fourth of July
Hey baby
It’s the fourth of July

Whatever happened
I apologize
So dry your tears
And baby walk outside
It’s the fourth of July

On the stairs I smoke a cigarette alone
Mexican kids are shooting fireworks below
Hey baby
It’s the fourth of July
Hey baby
It’s the fourth of July
We forgot all about the fourth of July
Hey baby
