From the recording Ghost Freight

Lyrics

GHOST FREIGHT

He’s an old man dressed in black
He’s an old man Starin’ down the miles of abandoned railroad track
He’s lookin’ for a freight train that won’t come back

The ghost freight runs late at night
Yeah the ghost freight only runs late at night
She’ll be long gone before the hint of light


Timbers in the trestle they’ll be turning gray
Timbers in the trestle they’ll be turning gray
‘Cause no freight will ever gonna come this way

Steel rails they’ll be turning to rust
Steel rails they’ll be turning to rust
The cross ties they’ll be soft as dust

Now Jesse James never robbed this train
No Billy the kid never robbed this train
It was progress progress to blame

He’s just an old man staring down the miles of railroad track
Just an old man and he’s still dressed in black
Ridin’ that ghost freight he’s never coming back
