Lyrics

her engine stands in waist-high weeds 

her iron heart is chilled

no more her whistle echoes

through the sleepy silver hills

now miles away he longs to go and climb her rusty side

to take her throttle one more time

and make their moonlight ride

 

my father's train

his dreams are dusty now

my father's train

he hears her pulling out of town

my father's train

she rolls through time and space 

with thunder, fire and grace

my father's train

 

he drives her windy cab that sways

six feet above the ground

her jingling valves and pounding rods 

he knows her soulful sound

he sees her in her heyday hauling hard her precious freight

she's white-lined on a rip track now

she's just dead weight

 

my father's train

his dreams are dusty now

my father's train

he hears her pulling out of town

my father's train

she rolls through time and space

with thunder, fire and grace

my father's train
