Song of the Day #3,648: ‘Runaway Train’ – Brad Paisley

Brad Paisley’s 2013 album Wheelhouse followed a string of critically and commercially successful releases matched by few in the music business.

It isn’t as good as the albums it followed, and it is probably best known for including ‘Accidental Racist,’ a song I’m sure Paisley has regretted ever since the first copy was pressed.

Wheelhouse was the first Paisley album to not reach at least Gold status, and his subsequent releases have failed to hit that mark as well.

All that said, the record does include some worthy songs, including today’s rollicking SOTD.

[Verse 1]
Headlights on the ceiling as she pulls into the drive
She never says she’s coming, she never says goodbye
She’s gonna bring the sunshine and she’s gonna bring the rain
It’s like I’m standing at the station and I’m waiting on a runaway train

[Verse 2]
When I was a youngin, my momma used to pray
That I’d find me a Christian girl and settle down someday
But the devils at the front door and she’s calling out my name
It’s like I’m standing at the station and I’m waiting on a runaway train

[Chorus:]
Runaway train coming down the track
Runaway train it don’t come back

[Verse 3]
Yeah I know what she’s doing but right now I don’t care
She can be Delilah and cut off all my hair
Woman’s got a hold on me that I just can’t explain
It’s like I’m standing at the station and I’m waiting on a runaway train

[Chorus]

[Verse 4]
In the morning when I wake and find that woman gone
I will swear this time that I’m finally moving on
Deep down in my heart I know nothings gonna change
And I’ll be standing at the station and waiting on a runaway train

    Best part of this song is the solos. The rest isn’t as interesting or memorable.
