King Of The Rails — Vance Gilbert © 2011 Disismye Music ASCAP

If you don’t love me
Then you don’t love me
There’s nothing I can do
Or say - your heart has a
Mind of it’s own
That I can’t change

If you don’t want me
If you really don’t want me
Please let’s dispense with
The kiss on the cheek so long
I’ll face the cold setting sun
On my own

Once upon a time the
King of the rails
Lay his head down on the track
Listening for the rumble of the 7:15
As it made it’s way back
To no one that mattered

If you don’t need me
I can’t make you need me
If anyone will
I’m sure you’ll do fine on your own
Oh pardon me, I didn’t know
That you weren’t alone



Vance - vocal, electric guitar
Tom Eaton - cymbals, drum programming
