So Blue

This song is by Stan Rogers and appears on the album Turnaround (1978).

I saw her cold in the morning light as we roared through the rain
Swaying softly to the ever-pounding steel
Drunk upon a night of train... the club car's gonna take her again
And I'm glad to just be on my own
The Ocean's gonna take me home, so hungry, so alone, and so blue.

Somewhere back behind the darkness lies The City on the Sea
Gone already with a sleep stuck in between
I left so much behind to grow. So much, too soon, but even so...
She sways along the aisle again
Crazy woman, dancing on a train, so hungry, so alone, and so blue.

Cranky people do their morning jerks and the coffee bar has only tea
And somewhere up ahead beyond the day, there's a lady keeping warm for
She's a mighty hand inside a silken glove
I've known it a while, and I can't get enough
I want to listen to Joni Mitchell on the radio
And make love...

A crazy lady on a daylight train is dancing for free
But everybody here just watches trees go by
She knows a bit of what this train can feel. Swaying spirit of the
Moving steel
She reminds me of what I'm going to. And even with the thought of you
I'm still so hungry. So alone. And so blue.
