Thread Name: Lyr Req: Thanksgiving Prayer (Johnny Cash)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: thanksgiving song wanted
I bet that that was supposed to be "the sight of a high-ballin' train," where highball is a verb meaning that a train is travelling at top speed.

If I were singing this song, I would change "the blue in your eyes" to "the love in your eyes." I have too many nieces with beautiful brown eyes to promulgate the theory that blue eyes are the ticket. (Folk process.)
