  1. Old Freight

From the album Old Freight

Lyrics

If you want to go back
to a simpler time
that just don’t exist
at least in your own mind
if you want to feel free
for just a moment in time
won’t you sing me a song
about an old freight line

you’re feeling tired
you’re hurting you’re sore
you’re broke down and helpless
like some worn out box car
you just gotta get away
at least in your mind
so won’t you sing me a song
about an old freight line

chorus:
sing me a song
about riding the rails
you can hear the lonesome whistle
and the rusty old wheels
you can smell the fuel from the tracks
and you can taste the salt from your eyes
won’t you sing me a song
about an old freight line

sometimes all I want
is to hop up and be gone
to find peace in the west
like in those old songs
where you don’t mind the time
where you do good work just for a dime
won’t you sing me a song
about an old freight line

well I think I was born
a good century too late
where there ain’t no real railroads
it's all UPS freight
and every single town
is like it’s more or less the same
won’t you sing me a song
about an old freight train

chorus:
sing me a song
about riding the rails
you can hear the lonesome whistle
and the rusty old wheels
you can smell the fuel from the tracks
and you can taste the salt from your eyes
won’t you sing me a song
about an old freight line

if you can’t tell I’m tired
I’m hurting I’m sore
I’m broke down and helpless
like some worn out box car
i just gotta get away
at least from my mind
so won’t you sing me a song
about an old freight line

chorus:
sing me a song
about riding the rails
you can hear the lonesome whistle
and the rusty old wheels
you can smell the fuel from the tracks
and you can taste the salt from your eyes
won’t you sing me a song
about an old freight line
