  • i’ve got this picture
    of a red & yellow American train.
    i’ve got this picture
    of a red & yellow American train
    – it’s gonna’ pull up
    at my station & pack away my pain.

    name this train “Santa Fe”
    you can hear its turbines hum.
    name this train “Sante Fe”
    you can hear its turbines hum
    – the payload lightens
    on the railroad to Kingdom Come.

    see that jumpsuit driver
    wave as he speeds on by.
    see that jumpsuit driver
    wave as he speeds on by.
    – he needs a ladder
    to climb to his cab, it’s so high.

    hear those big wheels
    roll & sing on straight rails.
    hear those big wheels
    roll & sing on straight rails
    – leaving behind loneliness
    speeding to where laughter prevails.

    I blast the triple air horn,
    praise the good-natured girl i know.
    i blast the triple air horn,
    praise the good-natured girl i know.
    – this poem’s all about her
    she’s the train, i’m the one on tow
