When jesse was a little girl, she only dreamed of trains

She never played with dolls or lacy kinds of things

Jesse counted boxcars instead of counting sheep

She could go anywhere when she went to sleep



Jesse laid a penny on the track one day

In God we trust she walked away

The very next morning all she could find

Was a little piece of copper squashed flatter than a dime



Jesse dreamed of trains

When the nighttime came

Nobody knew how she made it come true

Jesse dreamed of trains
