Chris De Burgh - Spanish Train Şarkı Sözü

heres a spanish train that runs between
quadalquivir and old seville,
and at dead of night the whistle blows,
and people hear shes running still...

and then they hush their children back to sleep,
lock the doors, upstairs they creep,
for ıt ıs said that the souls of the dead
fill that train ten thousand deep!!

well a railwayman lay dying with his people by his side,
his family were crying, knelt ın prayer before he died,
but above his bed just a-waiting for the dead,
was the devil with a twinkle ın his eye,
"well gods not around and look what ıve found,
this ones mine!!"

just then the lord himself appeared ın a blinding flash of light,
and shouted at the devil, "get thee hence to endless night!!"
but the devil just grinned and said "ı may have sinned,
but theres no need to push me around,
ı got him first so you can do your worst,
hes going underground!!"

"but ı think ıll give you one more chance"
said the devil with a smile,
"so throw away that stupid lance,
ıts really not your style",
joker ıs the name, poker ıs the game,
well play right here on this bed,
and then well bet for the biggest stakes yet,
the souls of the dead!!"

and ı said "look out, lord, hes going to win,
the sun ıs down and the night ıs riding ın,
that train ıs dead on time, many souls are on the line,
oh lord, hes going to win!.."

well the railwayman he cut the cards
and he dealt them each a hand of five
and for the lord he was praying hard
or that train hed have to drive...
well the devil he had three aces and a king,
and the lord, he was running for a straight,
he had the queen and the knave and the nine and ten of spades,
all he needed was the eight...

and then the lord he called for one more card,
but he drew the diamond eight,
and the devil said to the son of god,
"ı believe youve got ıt straight,
so deal me one for the time has come
to see wholl be the king of this place,
but as he spoke, from beneath his cloak,
he slipped another ace...

ten thousand souls was the opening bid,
and ıt soon went up to fifty-nine,
but the lord didnt see what the devil did,
and he said "that suits me fine",
"ıll raise you high to hundred and five,
and forever put an end to your sins",
but the devil let out a mighty shout, "my hand wins!!"

and ı said "lord, oh lord, you let him win,
the sun ıs down and the night ıs riding ın,
that train ıs dead on time, many souls are on the line,
oh lord, dont let him win..."

well that spanish train still runs between,
quadalquivir and old seville,
and at dead of night the whistle blows,
and people fear shes running still...
and far away ın some recess
the lord and the devil are now playing chess,
the devil still cheats and wins more souls,
and as for the lord, well, hes just doing his best...

and ı said "lord, oh lord, youve got to win,
the sun ıs down and the night ıs riding ın,
that train ıs still on time, oh my soul ıs on the line,
oh lord, youve got to win..."
