lyrics

FREIGHT CARS

The whistle blew like a howling owl across the tracks and the road. The windows shook in the sultry night, as the freight cars shunted and rolled, as the freight cars shunted and rolled. I lay in bed listening to Luxembourg, when Your Royal Ruler just said, that the King had died, that we all should cry, as the freight cars shunted and rolled.

My daddy worked on the railway tracks. Mum pulled the cable and drums in a factory out on the edge of town, where the freight cars shunted and rolled, where the freight cars shunted and rolled. I lay in bed and I dreamed of you, though we hadn’t yet met. I made bold plans to be a guitarman, as the freight cars shunted and rolled.

We had no hobos, no junkies, just the stale smell of ennui. So I dreamed my dreams of escape, from the ghost of this town, from the ghost of the sound of the freight cars that shunted and rolled.

All those years my heart was breaking, all this time I’ve been faking. Still I dream my dreams of escape, from the ghost of this town, from the ghost of the sound of the freight cars that shunted and rolled.
