lyrics

Train Songs
Moonlight sneaking through freight yards
Riding rails in old boxcars
The freedom that those old-time hobos knew
Big smoke bound migrations
Jilted lovers at each station
Every train song in my head I sang for you

If there’s a light, let it shine. Let it heal and undermine
The ravages of age
I can sing all night long, these old train songs
But I can’t turn pack the page

Country boy, where have you gone
I thought about it for so long
And sought the signs to ease my despair
Life too often beat you down
But still you knew where you were bound
And that your loved ones waited for you there

If there’s a light, let it shine. Let it heal and undermine
The ravages of age
I can sing all night long, these old train songs
But I can’t turn pack the page

Down on the street the world keeps racing on
Too fast to notice what is gone
I go down to the tracks to be alone
The cross-ties have been over grown
The trestles long since crumbled down
There’s no whistle and no bell to lead you home

If there’s a light, let it shine. Let it heal and undermine
The ravages of age
I can sing all night long, these old train songs
But I can’t turn pack the page
