I'll be leavin' in the mornin', and there's no need to explain
My reason for bein' here rode out on the Five O'Clock Train
I told her that I loved her, but my love was all in vain
My reason for bein' here rode out on the Five O'Clock Train

I don't remember why I came here, and I never meant to stay
But I met a pretty woman, and she said she'd like to play
Then she said the game waas over, at Five O'Clock today
She bought a one-way ticket, and she left me here to pay

So I'll be leavin' in the mornin', and there's no need to explain
My reason for bein' here rode out on the Five O'Clock Train
I told her that I loved her, but my love was all in vain
My reason for bein' here rode out on the Five O'Clock Train

I guess I should have listened when they told me love is blind
I know I was a fool to ever think she could be mine
And now it's time to move a little farther down the line
I'll hit that big old highway, and I'll leave this town behind

I'll be leavin' in the mornin', and there's no need to explain
My reason for bein' here rode out on the Five O'Clock Train
I told her that I loved her, but my love was all in vain
My reason for bein' here rode out on the Five O'Clock Train

Yeah, my reason for bein' here rode out on the Five O'Clock Train
