DT Lyrics:

Subject: Lyr Add: GREENVILLE TRESTLE HIGH (Jimmy Jett)
Date: 13 Feb 98 - 03:00 PM

Song: Greenville Trestle High
Date: ?
composer: ?

I remember as a boy how in wonderment and joy,
I'd watch the trains as they go by.
And the Whistle's lonesome sound,
You could hear for miles around,
As they rode across that Greenville Trestle High.

But the whistles don't sound like they used to.
Lately Not many trains go by.
Hard times across the land mean no work for a railroad man
And the Greenville Trestle now don't seem so high.

On the river bank I'd stand with a cane pole in my hand,
And watch the freight trains up against the sky.
With the black smoke trailing back,
As they moved along the track,
That runs across the The Greenville Trestle High.


When the lonesome whistles whine I get a rambling on my mind,
And I wish they still sounded that way.
As I turn and head for home Lord she ruble low and long,
Toward the sunset at the close of the day.


And the Greenville Trestle now don't seem so high

I have this song in my personal songbook, and have Jimmy Jeffrey down as the songwriter. Don't remember where I got that information. Doc Watson does the tune.
