3:10 to Yuma (re-recorded version)

Other versions ...

Background Information

Allegedly Sandy felt the original SAGA recording of '3.10 to Yuma', along with 'Pretty Polly', 'Milk and Honey', 'The Last Thing on My Mind', and 'Make Me a Pallet on Your Floor', were too rough around the edges, so she re-recorded the tracks using exactly the same arrangements as the original versions. All the re-recorded tracks are musically and vocally superior interpretations.


Lyrics

There is a lonely train called the 3.10 to Yuma
And it's the only train left for me to ride on
I'll catch that lonely train called the 3.10 to Yuma
I'll get my ticket now for my last time

They say the life of man is made up of four seasons
And springtime finds him young and planting his grain
And then the summer comes bringing warm rains of reason
And time to reap his crop of heartache and pain

The winter comes, finds him snow-cropped and laden
He has been humbled now, walking into the rain
But the rains of death never fall from the cloudless skies of Yuma
Time stand still for those on that 3.10 train

There is a lonely train called the 3.10 to Yuma
And it's the only train left for me to ride on
I'll catch that lonely train called the 3.10 to Yuma
I'll get my ticket now for my last time
