Train – Lyrics – written by Everett Dumas
He’d ride his dropped, chopped banana bike through the monkey trails at night
He drank his first can of Bud up on Treasure Hill
He’d throw rocks down at the frog pond He used to get a thrill hopping on a train, hopping on a train
Now there’s rusty tracks and tall, gray grass growing up between the rails and empty cars. He says
The train don’t run by here no more
They just closed down the country store
And the mill shut down about a year before that
No the train don’t run by here no more
There’s footprints in the concrete where his father used stand
He followed in his shoes, making paper for the news.
He did his job with pride, it choked him up inside to be American, to be American
Now there’s no more smell of sulfur, no pulp trucks hauling logs and empty cars
Crooked politicians, whom we sent to represent.
Deals are made made, unfair trade meant for the one percent
They make the laws and bend ’em, Take the jobs and send ’em down to Mexico
They watch their profits soar, selling war, all while pointing fingers at the poor who have only empty cars because..
He loves this town his whole family’s in it’s sacred ground
Everybody gather ’round, the smokestack’s coming down…
