The Engineer's Song

The times have changed, the trains have all gone
Can't help but thinking just how it went wrong
The rails and the ties, the engineer cries
The look in his eyes tells you all
He'll always be hummin' his engineer song
The years og delight steaming all across this land
Always contented and steady of hand
The wind and the rain, the joy and the pain
Again and again he pressed on
He always was hummin' his engineer song

The days on the rails may be over
But that doesn't mean it's all gone
The memories can live on forever
As long as we're singing our song
As long as we're singing our song

The men dressed in stripes have played such a part
With childhood memories held dear to the heart
His arm in the air, his wave filled with cheer
He'll always be here in our thoughts
And he'll always be hummin' his engineer song
The times have changed but don't let them fade
The maidens of steel all as precious as jade
What sets them apart, a tear in their heart
Longing to take you along
And head down the rails with his engineer song

The days on the rails may be over
But that doesn't mean it's all gone
The memories can live on forever
As long as we're singing our song
As long as we're singing our song

All aboard, all aboard,
We're off to the Gaff Topsail Plain
Come hell or high water, come blizzard or rain
We'll take you to heaven and back home again
All aboard, all aboard
And gaze through the side window pane
With scenery so lovely and a rush in your veins
We're off to the Gaff Topsail Plain
We're off to the Gaff Topsail Plain

All aboard, all aboard,
We're off to the Gaff Topsail Plain
Come hell or high water, come blizzard or rain
We'll take you to heaven and back home again
All aboard, all aboard
And gaze through the side window pane
With scenery so lovely and a rush in your veins
We're off to the Gaff Topsail Plain
With scenery so lovely and a rush in your veins
We're off to the Gaff Topsail Plain
We're off to the Gaff Topsail Plain
We're off to the Gaff Topsail Plain
