Tom Russell Nina Simone Lyrics

sponsored links
Trains used to run
All across Mexico
Way down through the Yucatan
Where ever in hell you know
It was down in San Cristobal
That I first heard the sound
Of Nina"s voice on the juke box
spinning darkly around
And I was so lost down there
Out of love and walking alone
But walking beside me
Was Nina Simone

Tonight in my dressing room
the tea kettle rattles
water pipes dripping down
On a plate of Spanish apples

Outside in the train yard
Is just Hanks Williams talking
to Nina Simone
Yeah we"ve been to hell and back
Love cut us right down to the bone
But walking besides us
Is Nina Simone

I"ve driven your highways and back roads
I rode the grey dog
Through the snow and the sleet and the hail,
through the sunlight and through the fog

I"ve heard the ravens call morning up
With a little raw saxaphones
But the darkest of ravens
was Nina Simone
Yeah we"ve been to hell and back
Love cut us right down to the bone
But walking besides us
Was Nina Simone.
Trains used to run...
All across Mexico...
