Lyrics

the clickety sound of the southbound freight

and the high speed hum of the passenger train

become a part of the soul and the heart and the mind

of the boy that's raised by the railroad line

 

the sound of the whistle at the cross in the road

and the tanks and the trucks and tractors on the flat car load

become a part of the soul and the heart and the mind

of the boy that's raised by the railroad line

 

and the big round penny that you laid on the rails that the wheels smashed flat

and a glimpse of the faces of the ladies and the man in the engineer hat

and the brakeman waves from the red caboose

he's a part of the past that never really broke loose

he's a part of the soul and the heart and the mind

of the boy that's raised by the railroad line
