(David Francey)

Kelli drove us down the lake
On a bright Ohio day
And we looked across the railway yards
At the hoppers painted grey
That coal train from Kentuckey, man
She's come a long, long way
Down in Ashtabula
On a sunny summer's day

Walked down to the harbour
Down to the harbour side
Where the coal was piled up waiting
High and black and wide
And it's waiting for a laker, man
To carry it away
Down in Ashbabula
On a sunny summer's day

And the tilting bridge
Itself swings back
And sail is given way
And the cobbled streets
That climb the hills
Are fading red to grey

In the maritime museum
So high above the waves
The pictures of the past recalled
In black and white and grey
But the Masters and the ships are gone
Long since passed away
Down in Ashtabula
On a sunny summer's day

One of only two songs I know of that mention Ashtabula, the other being Dylan's You're Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go, from Blood on the Tracks.

Thanks, Stewie and Mudcat for posting these. This is one of my favourites by Francey. I hear it a lot on a Pandora Radio station I customised using Francey's name which brings up a lot of his music plus that of similar artists. I love Pandora!
