FRED EAGLESMITH lyrics : "Freight Train"

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
