Trains and Boats and Planes
Dwight Yoakam Lyrics

Trains and boats and planes
Are passing by,
Could mean a trip
To Paris or Rome

For someone else
But not for me
The trains and boats and planes
Took you away, away from me.
We were so in love,
And high above
We had a star
To wish upon, wish

And dreams do come true,
But not for me
The trains and boats and planes
Took you away, away from me.

Trains and boats and planes
Took you away,
But every time I see them I pray
And if my prayers

Can cross the sea,
The trains and boats and planes
Will bring you back,
Back home to me...

Thanx for posting this. Dwight is my all time favorite singer/songwriter. I've been rediscovering his music. This Time and Population Me were my two favorite albums.

I agree wholeheartedly with robert maynard's post about Dwight Yoakam being the best country/rockabilly performer since John R. Cash. There are my two favourites. I'm only sorry it took me so long to discover Dwight! I grew up listening to Johnny Cash.

Thanks for your post. I sure hope he returns to Ontario some time even if it is at a casino. He seems to play a lot of shows in this type of venue.

Christian D

I saw him at Casino Rama a couple of years ago. Great performance, but kind of a lousy audience. Casino shows are weird.

Dwight and his band were truly great- I'd been waiting to see that since the 80's!

Hi, Christian D! I'm so pleased that you think Dwight is amazing, too.I only discovered how awesome he is thanks for a musician friend a few months ago. I must see him in concert somewhere someday.

Christian D

Dwight is pretty amazing.


I think this is, far and away, the best cover of this song. Why do people say it was one of the "lesser" Bachrach/David compositions? Precisely because they don't understand that it is all country.

The box Tops made it very popular


I like the Everly Bos. also. Try them.
