Rod McKuen
I've been away so long
Fought a war that's come and gone
Doesn't anybody know my name

My sister's up and wed
My Momma's took to bed
Now my old dog Red's gone lame

Please tell me if you can
What time do the trains roll in
Two-ten, six-eighteen
Ten-forty-four

The hedge is turnin' brown
The house is fallin' down
Doesn't anybody know my name

The girl I left behind
She's run off to Caroline
I don't have to read a sign
To know things ain't the same

Please tell me if you can
What time do the trains roll in
Two-ten, six-eighteen
Ten-forty-four

You can't go far away
On just a soldier's pay
Doesn't anybody know my name

Used to be when I could see
Everybody wanted me
Now nobody comes to see
The blind man catch the train

Please tell me if you can
What time do the trains roll in
Two-ten, six-eighteen
Ten-forty-four
