GUEST,Erich DTStudy: Jay Gould's Daughter (50) RE: DTStudy: Jay Gould's Daughter 20 Apr 10

This on is by Utah Phillips from All Used Up (Philo1050). A shortened version of Pete Seegers.


Hey Jay Gould said just before he died
There's two more trains I'd like to buy
Tell me daddy what can they be
Chicago North West and then the Santa Fe
It's the Santa Fe, the Santa Fe
Chicago North West and then the Santa Fe

Hey Jay Gould's daughter said before she died
There's two more drinks I'd like to try
Tell me daughter what can they be
It's a glass of water and a cup of tea
A cup of tea ...

Early morning in a drizzling rain
And around the curve came a passenger train
On the blinds was hobo John
He's a good old hobo but he's dead and gone
He's dead ...

Hey Charly Snider was a brave engineer
He told his fireman have no fear
Pour on the water shovel in the coal
Stick your head out the window watch the drivers roll
And the drivers roll ...

And Jay Gould's daughter said before she died
Daddy fix the blinds, so the bums can't ride
If ride they must they can ride the rod
And they put their trust in the hands of God
The hands of God ...
