(Randy Handley/Jack Sundrud)
I remember my first ride
All aboard the eight-o-five
Ran from Dixie to Moline
Stopped about a hundred times between
Safe between my ma and pa
I saw boom-town America
Sailin' over waves of grain
Gone the way of the Heartland Train
Chorus:
H-o-o-o wa-a-h
On an iron horse to glory I did ride
H-o-o-o wa-a-h
When it felt like there was no end of the line
Holdin' on into the night
I counted every backwoods light
Lonesome whistle singin' sweet
Rhythm of the rails rock me to slee-eep
I dreamed I'd be the engineer
Steamin' through a new frontier
Boys will grow and dreams will fade
Gone the way of the Heartland Train
Chorus
Now all the farms amd old downtowns
Are boarded up or all torn down
Beaten by the winds of change
Gone the way of the Heartland Train
Yes, and...
Chorus X 2
