Railroad Blues #56
Hear that lonesome train whistle --
do you hear it calling to you?
You get no rest deep in your soul
because a train track cuts it in two.
You won't have to wait too long
to catch the train to the other side.
Just put an ear down to the rail,
hear your train time ticking and crying.
Maybe you can jump this one
if you want to go running your feet
but don't you lay down on the track
or that fast freight will rock you to sleep.
