Train In Vain
Dwight Yoakam Lyrics


They say you stand by your man
Tell me something I don't understand
You said you love me and that's a fact
And then you left me, said you felt trapped
Well some things you can't explain away
But the heartache's with me to this day

Did you stand by me?
No not at all
Did you stand by me?
No way

All the times that we were close,
I remember these things the most
I've seen my dreams come tumbling down
I can't be happy without you around
So alone I keep the wolves at bay
And there's only one thing I can say

Did you stand by me?
No not at all
Did you stand by me?
No way

So explain why this must be
Did you lie when you spoke to me?

Did you stand by me?
No not at all
Did you stand by me?
No way

I got a job but it don't pay
I need new clothes,
Somewhere to stay
Hey without these things I can do
But without your love
I can't make it through
But if you don't understand
My point of view
Then there's not a damn thing I can do

Did you stand by me?
No not at all
Did you stand by me?
No way

Dwight countrified Train in Vain and it totally works.

OriginalJramion

No. This version does not resemble the original in anyway besides the lyrics. It is a completely different song, not countrified. About the only thing I like about this song was the zydeco-esque sound.

They played this song while I was at Chipotle and I knew it was a country cover of The Clash. Music is wild sometimes
