From over the hill
The train will show
You will know it's coming
By it's whistle blow

The engineer keeps it going
Making sure everything is fine
For he knows it's his job
To keep that train on time

In some of those cars
Passangers sit and wait
Hoping to reach their destinations
But, never knowing their fate

In some empty cars
There are hobos catching a ride
Never knowing if they'll make it
But always hoping for a better life

In other cars there is cargo
Waiting to reach its destinations
Then it all geets inspected
To see if it passes expectations

But, it's that engineers job
To keep that train on time
And the preassure builds up
As that train reaches a steep incline

Yes, over the hill
That train will show
You will know it's coming
By each of it's whistle blows
