about

This is a forthcoming track from our new release "Bass,Drums,Guitars and Organs". Its a bit of a nod and homage to the late great Gerry Rafferty-who was a bit of a rascal, on top of being a great songwriter.

lyrics

He’s has a ticket- and looks across the tracks He’s got no direction- but he’s never turning back

There’s someone on the train, heading for the same place-

He’ll see it in her eyes-
He’ll know it on her face

And he finds himself a seat-
On the train to Rafferty-

There’s a story- In a movie that she once saw

About a place she could run to, but she never knew how far-
She has a romance novel- in the bottom of her purse-
She never thought her life could go from bad to worse
And she slides into a seat-
On the train to Rafferty- On a Rafferty Train

And the train starts moving- down the line
Leaving everyone’s past behind

No one knows what there're going to find 

But it’s gonna be different- different -
this time things will change-

They take the tickets- and they roll on down the track
The same direction- No one’s ever turning back
There’s some one on the train, heading for the same place-

She’ll see it in her eyes- He’ll know it on her face

They’re sharing the same seat- On the train to Rafferty-
