2:19

by Tom Waits


I lost everything I had in the ´29 flood
The barn was buried ´neath a mile of mud
Now I´ve got nothing but the whistle and the steam
My baby´s leaving town on the 2:19

I said, hey, hey, I don´t know what to do
I will remember you
Hey, hey, I don´t know what to do
My baby´s leaving town on the 2:19

Now there´s a fellow that´s preaching ´bout hell and damnation
Bouncing off the walls of the Grand Central Station
I treated her bad, I treated her mean
Baby´s leaving town on the 2:19

I said, hey, hey, I will remember you
Hey, hey, I don´t know what to do
Hey, I don´t know what to do
My baby´s leaving town on the 2:19

Now I´ve always been puzzled by the yin and the yang
It´ll come out in the wash, but it always leaves a stain
Sturm and Drang, the luster and the sheen
My baby´s leaving town on the -

Hey, hey, I don´t know what to do
Hey, hey, I will remember you
Hey, hey, I will remember you
My baby´s leaving town on the 2:19

Lost the baby with the water, and the preacher stole the bride
Sent her out for a bottle, but when she came back inside
She didn´t have my whiskey, didn´t have my gin
With a hat full of feathers and a wicked grin

I said, hey, hey, I will remember you
Yeah baby, I will remember you
My baby´s leaving town on the 2:19

On the train you get smaller, as you get farther away
The roar covers everything you wanted to say
Was that a raindrop or a tear in your eye?
Were you drying your nails or waving goodbye?

Hey, hey, I will remember you
Hey, hey, I don´t know what to do
Oh baby
My baby´s leaving town on the 2:19

I will remember you
I don´t know what to do, baby
