Song Info


Commuter Railway Blues (Blegen/Hallock/Roper/Scholtka)




Sipping coffee in the morning
Got my shirt and my tie
The bell gives a warning
8:11's coming by

Climb out to that platform
It's 8:29
When it comes the voice informs that
"We're running behind"
Yeah, we're running behind
We're running behind

Doors are closing, rush aboard
I get knocked around
Coffee spills on my shirt now
And falls to the ground

Fat guy takes the door seat
With an old lady standing there
Treated like slabs of meat
And we paid a two-dollar fare
Yeah a two dollar fare
Yeah, that ain't fair

We're being delayed
Because of signals ahead
Something's decomposing
I think that bum is dead

Bum wakes up and he wants a dime
His friend's on the track ahead
So we won't be on time
Yeah, we won't be on time
Yeah, we won't be on time

I got the commuter
The commuter railway blues
Yeah I got the commuter
Commuter railway blues
I guess I got my walking shoes
And my commuter blues

Bah bah bah bah bah bah bah bah bah bah
Bah bah bah bah bah bah bah bah bah bah

Song Notes:

Dedicated to all those who take the CTA - the Chicago Transit Authority. It's a mess.
