(Wide-Eyed) Railman

lyrics

It's no far trip to the border and back again from the Springs
Trestle over the water, maybe hear the Railman sing
Southbound freight moving downstate, green mountain cannonball
Pass this way not a second too late a hundred thousand tons to haul.

Wide-eyed Railman, did you hear what the whistle say
Take a lot more than a locomotive to haul this train today.

Many the council taken around the winter fire
Moonrise over the mountain lake, crowning our hearts desire
Though the winds may blow us to kingdom come
There's no place we got to roam,
Cause that sun gonna rise a hell-fire red on this pastureland
Our home.

Wide-eyed Railman, did you hear what the whistle say
Take a lot more than a locomotive to haul this train today.

The feeling so outstanding you don't have a thing to fear
There's a path so demanding take every able person to steer.
Though it's not my place to make a point or to even up the score
Cause chances are they're gonna bust this joint
'Fore the reaper come back, come back for more.

Wide-eyed Railman, did you hear what the whistle say
Take a lot more than a locomotive to haul this train today.
Take a lot more than a locomotive to haul this train today.
Take a lot more than a locomotive to haul this train today.
