Counting Crows – Ghost Train lyrics

I took the cannon ball down to the ocean
Across the desert from the sea to shining sea
I rode a ladder that climbed across the nation
50 million feet of earth between the buried and me
"How do you do?"
She said "Hey, how do you do?"
She buys a ticket cause it's cold were she comes from
She climbs aboard because she's scared of getting older in the snow
Love is a ghost train through the darkness
Hold on to me darling I got no place to go
"How do you do?"
She said "Hey, how do you do?"
I took the cannonball down to the ocean
Watch the diesel disappear beneath the tumbling waves
Love is a ghost train howling on the radio
"Remember everything" She said "When only memory Remains"
"How do you do?"
She said "Hey, how do you do?"
