Fred Eaglesmith – I Like Trains lyrics

Sixteen miles from Arkadelphia, right near the Texas border
Traffic was stopped at a railway crossing, took it to the shoulder
I stoked the kettle, I put it to the metal
I shook the gravel loose
I missed the train but I was happy with
A glimpse of the caboose
'Cause I like trains
I like fast trains
I like trains
That call out through the rain
I like trains
I like sad trains
I like trains that whisper your name
I was born on a Greyhound bus
My mama was a diesel engine
They tried to put me behind the wheel
But I wouldn't let them
You shoulda seen the look in their eyes
And how it turned to tears
When I finally told them
I want to be an engineer
'Cause I like trains
I like fast trains
I like trains that call out through the rain
I like trains
I like sad trains
I like trains that whisper your name
Now, you think that I've got someone new
But darlin', that ain't true
I could never love another woman besides you
It's not some dewy eyed darlin', darlin'
That's gonna drive you insane
But any more, I'd be listening for
The sound of a big old train
'Cause I like trains
I like fast trains
I like trains
That call out through the rain
I like trains
I like sad trains
I like trains that whisper your name
I like trains that whisper, whisper your name
