Title : Ain't No Brakeman 

Performed by : John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers 

Album : Silver Tones - The Best Of John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers

 Lyrics
Staring down a double line,
We're flowing off behind,
I'll never see your face no more;
I left you back there on that shore.

We had a chance,
It slipped away,
Don't call my name.
There ain't no brakeman on this train.
There ain't no brakeman on this train.

There ain't no engineer,
To pull that throttle back.
It's full steam up ahead,
On down that windy track.

There ain't no way,
To turn around,
From all the pain,
There ain't no brakeman on this train.

(bridge) I'm not saying that,
You are wrong, for playing to win.
Watch what you're doing now,
Watch what you're doing now,
The things that you throw away,
They won't come again.

(instrumental 8 bars x2)

We sat down at that station,
You were trying to decide,
Was I your destination?
Or just one stop on the ride?

We make mistakes,
Now we pay,
Can't turn back,
There ain't no brakeman on this train.
There ain't no brakeman on this train.
There ain't no brakeman on this train.
(fade to end)
