GUEST,Erich Songs About the Disappearing of the Trains (61* d) RE: Songs About the Disappearing of the Trains 08 Jan 11


Old 97 written by Pop Wagner (as sung by Colin Wilkie & Shirley Hart)

Old 97 where did you go
Been so doggone long since I heard your whistle blow
Old 97 where did you go
Ain't we going to see you no more

I can still remember a busy Monday morning
Station full of people, happy and forlorn
Laughing and a-crying, moving to and fro
Old 97 where did you go

In my days of childhood I lived along the track
Watched the trains a-leaving and I'd watch 'em coming back
Watch the engines rolling, puffing down the road
Old 97 where did you go

Now the days are over, the trains no longer run
People moving faster, going with each setting sun
Travelling on the railroad they said was much too slow
Old 97 where did you go
