Bobby Goldsboro - The L&N Don't Stop Here Anymore Lyrics

Font:      
Align:    
  • The L&N don't stop here anymore
  • And the whistle of the engine's just an echo in the wind
  • And that old pot-bellied stove ain't smoked a log in ten Decembers
  • And a memory's the railroads next of kin
  • If you close your eyes you just might hear the sound
  • Of a faraway conductor cryin', "People all aboard!"
  • And that water tank that filled the train
  • It sure looks mighty thirsty
  • 'Cause the L&N don't stop here anymore.
  • And the whistle stops
  • And loadin' docks
  • They're nearly all deserted
  • And the railroad people all have moved away
  • There's a ghost town feelin' where there once
  • Were sounds and noise and laughter
  • But like cowboy heros now they've gone away.
  • The fancy depot down at Clarksville was the rage
  • But it gave way to time and cobwebs
  • And there's a sign tacked on the door
  • "This railroad town is now closed down - you'll have to go to Jackson".
  • 'Cause the L&N don't stop here anymore.
  • Now the clickity-clack of the railroad track is gone
  • And the depots that stood tall and proud are now about to fall
  • And if Roy Acuff were born today
  • He just might be a farmer
  • 'Cause there wouldn't be no Wabash Cannonball
  • No, the L&N don't stop here anymore.
