Words and music by Herb Pedersen and Nikki Pedersen

Old Train, I can hear your whistle blow
And I want to be jumping on again.
Old Train, I've been everywhere you go
And I know what lies beyond each bend.

CHORUS: Old Train, each time you pass, you're older than the last,
And it seems I'm too old for running.
I hear your rusty wheels grate against the rails.
They cry with every mile, and I think I'll stay awhile.

Old Train, I grow weary at the miles,
And I miss the freedom that was mine.
Old Train, just to think about those times,
I'll smile when you're highballing by.

[Recorded by John Denver, The Dillards, Rose Maddox, Tony Rice, The Seldom Scene, and several others.]
