Fred Eaglesmith – Freight Train lyrics

Well, I just came down the Chippewa
Had a station wagon and a hundred dollars
I was thinking 'bout the girl I'd lost a year before
I hadn't seen her for some time
Thought that I might go on by
When your memory came flooding in and you closed that door
Wish I was a freight train, baby
Wish I was a diesel locomotive
I'd come whistling down your track
And crashing in your door
Wish I was a freight train, baby
Wish I didn't have a heart
And you'd need a shovel full of coal
Just to get me started
Wish I was a freight train, baby
Wish I was a freight train
Every time I talk to you
And I hear your jealous lies
I feel like I've been left abandoned
On some old railway siding
And every time I hear your voice
My water just keeps cold
My stoker will not stoke
And my boiler will not boil
Wish I was a freight train, baby
Wish I was a diesel locomotive
I'd come whistling down your track
And crashing in your door
Wish I was a freight train, baby
Wish I didn't have a heart
And you'd need a shovel full of coal
Just to get me started
Wish I was a freight train, baby
Wish I was a freight train
Every time I fell behind and I could not get ahead
I wish someone would pull a lever
And give me a little sand
And every time I slip behind, hey, even further back
I wish some switch man would come out of the fog and change my track
Wish I was a freight train, baby
Wish I was a diesel locomotive
I'd come whistling down your track
And crashing in your door
Wish I was a freight train, baby
Wish I didn't have a heart
And you'd need a shovel full of coal
Just to get me started
Wish I was a freight train, baby
Wish I was a freight train
