Carrie Newcomer – When It's Gone It's Gone lyrics
The New York Central Railroad was something in her day
A million tons of coal and steel must have passed this way

The Ghost of some old engineer
Walks this earth and you might hear
While looking down on all those lights
"Could I see your ticket please."

When It's gone it's gone
But the echoes just go on and on and on and on
We send it out like our breath
And somebody takes it in, Somebody takes it in
Someone

In the age of possibility cheap gas, John Glenn and tube TV
When Martin walked many miles to stand beside Gandhi
But faith was stoned with cans and rocks
And the neighbor kid came home in a box
Now we don't believe so much of everything we hear

When It's gone it's gone
But the echoes just go on and on and on and on
We send it out like our breath
And somebody takes it in, Somebody takes it in
Someone

Tomorrow's just to far to see
To far to know to love or grieve
Every action is received

Like a legacy
It is our legacy
Route 26 was open fields and I remember when
Now every town I pass on through
Has the same outer skin

How could he sell his father's bones
All the others did but he just won't
He says "When I'm dead you can take it all
But for now just let them graze."

When It's gone it's gone
But the echoes just go on and on and on and on
We send it out like our breath
And somebody takes it in, Somebody takes it in
Someone

When It's gone it's gone
But the echoes just go on and on and on and on
We send it out like our breath
And somebody takes it in, Somebody takes it in
Someone
