Raised By The Railroad Line
(Paul Craft)

The clickety sound of the southbound freight
And the high-speed hum of a passenger train
Becomes a part of the soul and a heart and the mind
Of a boy who's raised by the railroad line

The sound of a whistle at the crossin' road
And the tanks and the trucks
And the tractors on the flatcar load
Becomes a part of the soul and a heart and the mind
Of a boy who's raised by the railroad line

CHORUS
And the big round penny that you lay on the rails
And the wheels mash flat
And a glimpse of the faces of the ladies
And the picture of the men
In the engineer's hat
And the brakeman waves from the red caboose
He's a part of the past
Never quite turns loose
It's a part of the soul and a heart and the mind
Of a boy who's raised by the railroad line

CHORUS

The clickety sound of the southbound freight
And the high-speed hum of a passenger train
Becomes a part of the soul and a heart and the mind
Of a boy who's raised by the railroad line
