Adrian Belew lyrics - The rail song



Lyrics:


  
   I recall as a boy we would hop the freights
  wasn't nothin' but a kick back then
  there was no better thrill for my anxious heart
  than a long flatcar
  headin' out of the yard
  and I knew even then she was in my blood
  like the time when I first hired on
  and the fireman laughed at my bony nose
  but he tossed me a cap
  said GM&O
  and I was a man...
  
  I gave her my best years
  well, what can you do but laugh
  I don't expect she'll ever be coming back
  
  When we climbed up the great Appalachians
  her engines would be raging like hell
  then we'd come back down to the rising towns
  where the cattle stare
  in the frozen air
  For me there nothing more sacred
  than the beautiful sound she'd make
  her long blue signal blowin' deep in the night,
  it would get to me there,
  it would get to me there
  Now I'm afraid...
  
  Afraid of these silent hours
  awake underneath my old cap
  I don't expect she'll ever be coming back
  
  Well, I watched the beginning of the end for her
  when I saw my first jet airplane
  flying high overhead like a bird of prey
  while the mighty fell
  in the land of the brave
  Now I'm alone.
