I am not the biggest country music fan in the world. I don’t hate it, but it’s iffy as to which songs I like, which I tolerate and which I simply cannot stand.

That being said, I heard a song the other day while skipping around radio stations Jason Aldean came on KAT Country, aka KATJ in CA.

This was totally one of those songs that literally stopped me in my tracks [pun intended]. I had to look it up afterwards.

I know this story.

I have lived this story.

“Night Train”

I’ve been thinkin’ bout you all day baby
waitin’ on that sun to go down
whatcha say I pick you up after work
slide over, well slip out to the outskirts of town
got a blanket and a fifth of comfort
a little something to knock off the edge
it’s supposed to get a little cool tonight
looks like I’m gonna have to hold you tight… yeah

[Chorus:]
Bout a mile off old mill road
in that spot nobody knows
park the truck and we take off running
hurry up, girl I hear it coming
got a moon and a billion stars
sound of steel and old box cars
the thought of you is driving me insane
come on baby lets go listen to the night train

yeah I hope its gonna be a long one
if were lucky its moving slow
wouldn’t mind if it lasted all night
lying next to you on that hillside lets go

Bout a mile off old mill road
in that spot nobody knows
park the truck and we take off running
hurry up girl, I hear it coming
got a moon and a billion stars
sound of steel and old box cars
the thought of you is driving me insane
come on baby lets go listen to the night train

Let’s go listen to the night train [x2]

[Chorus]

Let’s go listen to the night train
