HATE TRAIN TO BITTERSVILLE

 

VERSE
Well – I left out of Lubbock with you on my mind,
Heard about your carousin’, cheatin’ and lyin’.
Said I’d love you forever, but don’t think I will.
Ain’t cruisin’ in no Caddy Deville – I’m on the hate train to Bittersville!

VERSE
Thought about it for a second in Cut And Shoot,
But jail was out – so took a different route:
Hope then Disappointment, then off to Looneyville.
Ain’t cruisin’ in no Caddy Deville – I’m on the hate train to Bittersville!

CHORUS
Headin’ to – Bittersville! Well the rides’ been long and I’ve had my fill.
Through Stranger, Shafter, Big Lump and Tool. In Bull Town you’re the mayor – that much I knew.
I flew right through Loving, Paradise and Jollyville, passed Little Hope and rolled into Mudville
I’m out runnin’ the pain on the hate train to Bittersville!

VERSE
If we’d made it to Okay, we mighta’ had a chance,
But I got hung up in Independence:
Took a right at Needmore – started climbin’ the hill.
Ain’t cruisin’ in no Caddy Deville –
I’m on the hate train to Bittersville!

CHORUS
Headin’ to – Bittersville! Well the rides’ been long and I’ve had my fill.
Through Stranger, Shafter, Big Lump and Tool. In Bull Town you’re the mayor – that much I knew.
I flew right through Loving, Paradise and Jollyville, passed Little Hope and rolled into Mudville
I’m out runnin’ the pain on the hate train to Bittersville!

BRIDGE
Now I know I should forgive and go on to Glory,
But I’d rather sing this in Eulogy . . .

CHORUS
Headin’ to – Bittersville! Well the rides’ been long and I’ve had my fill.
Through Stranger, Shafter, Big Lump and Tool. In Bull Town you’re the mayor – that much I knew.
I flew right through Loving, Paradise and Jollyville, passed Little Hope and rolled into Mudville
I’m out runnin’ the pain on the hate train to Bittersville!
I’m out runnin’ the pain on the hate train to Bittersville!
