lyrics

Star sign

A man is loneliest in the evening
Right about the time the sun goes down
Makes no difference if he’s out on the road
Or staring out the window in his own home town
Train’s no use on the river
Ferry’s no good on the sand
A fellow’s no use when he’s on his own
And his woman’s no good when she’s with another man


Well I picked up my Spanish guitar
And I made myself this song
But the singing makes no difference
And the evening’s just as long
Train’s no use in the river
Ferry’s no good on the shore
A man’s no use when he’s on his own
When his baby don’t want him no more

There’s a star that passes my window pane
You can see it when the night is clear
It don’t say nothing but it eases me to know
If I look up it’ll always, always be there
Train’s no use on the water
Ship’s no good on the sand
A fellow’s no good when he’s on his own
His woman’s no use when she’s with another man
