Lyrics

I’m travelin' eastward on the Heartbreak Line
My ticket to leave my sorry past behind

Yes, I’m riding the Heartbreak Line
And I'm running from pain on this lonesome train
The Heartbreak Line

The hateful words that tumbled from her lips
Struck me down and stung me like a whip
Promises she pulled out of her purse
Lover’s vows now haunt me like a curse

So I’m riding the Heartbreak Line
And I running from pain on this lonesome train
The Heartbreak Line

The hobos ridin' with me on this car
Tell me to forget you must go far
Why, there’s a gentle man who’s been ridin' for thirty years
Still every night his face is lined with tears

We’re all riding the Heartbreak Line
And we’re running from pain on this lonesome train
The Heartbreak Line
