I'm just an engineer from Denver.
Hate to hear my customers complain.
I'm sending a letter to my senator,
"Treat this railroad like it were a saint."
Get that choo-choo on the track,
Put some steam in your smoke stack.
Grease and wheels, burning steel.
Put the throttle in your hand.
Get that choo-choo on the track.
Washington got real defensive.
Making friends, sending them AWACS
Boarding up thos e Amtrak stations,
Citizens have to pay the tax.
They're crying the blues in
Detroits not blowing any horns.
You can hear it said,
"This railroads almost dead."
Yet they're going ahed with Westway in New York.
