Bobby Bare – I've Got A Thing About Trains lyrics

I get a sad kind of feeling when I see a passenger train
In this fast movin' world we live in nobody rides them much these days
Oh maybe I'm just sentimental cause I know that things have to change
But I still like to go for a train ride cause I've got a thing about trains
Train train train you're out of place these days
But you've had your days of glory train train train
[ ac. Guitar ]
Train they say you're too slow for travelin' but I'm gonna miss you some day
When my little boy says daddy what was it like to ride a train
I'll say it was a good way to travel when things didn't move quite so fast
And I'm sorry that you can't ride one but trains are the thing of the past
Train train train you're fading from the scene
But I'm gonna mourn your passing train train train
[ ac. Guitar ]
So if you're tired of people and buildings weary of worry and strain
Then you ought to go on a train ride and look out the window at things
Go for a ride down to Memphis the night train is still right on time
But I read in the papers this mornin' next week they're gonna take it off the line
Train train train blow your whistle proudly and loud
As you roll to your place in hist'ry train train train I've got a thing about trains
