when it's warm out
and work is done
i'll sit quietly
and wonder.

The whistle seemed a good idea
lets people know a train is coming.
first a guy invented the whistle,
another said, "I can make it louder."

we live a half mile away from the tracks,
over the hill and down a bit.
every morning after the train runs through town
i have to straighten the pictures on the wall.


Someday they'll find
those early morning,
ultra blasting train whistles
blew America's mind.
