Cowboy Junkies - The Last Spike Lyrics

Font:      
Align:    
  • Mornings feel so damn sad these days
  • Without the call of the 8:15
  • That old familiar echo
  • Has finally died away
  • Leaving nothing but a chill
  • Where there once was a mighty scream
  • And Ive watched the flat cars
  • Take away our timber
  • Ive watched the coal cars steal our rock
  • And now that weve got
  • Nothing left to take were told
  • That the wheels will stop turning,
  • The whistles will stop blowing,
  • These foolish dreams must stop
  • Last year they closed down the post office,
  • Took the only flag we had in town
  • That old brick building
  • Still stands like a cenotaph
  • To a vision lost and buried in
  • A very distant past
  • And Ive watched the flat cars
  • Take away our timber
  • Ive watched the coal cars steal our rock
  • And now that weve got
  • Nothing left to take were told
  • That the wheels will stop turning,
  • The whistles will stop blowing,
  • These foolish dreams must stop
  • The longest train Ive ever seen
  • Was the train that you were on
  • I walked you to the station,
  • We kissed and you were gone
  • I dream at night about you coming home
  • The train in the station,
  • Your uniform on fire
  • As you step onto the platform
  • The band plays a little louder,
  • And as we embrace your cap falls off
  • Oh, I guess these foolish dreams must stop
  • Mornings feel so damn sad these days
  • Without the call of the 8:15
  • Looks like this town is finally
  • Going to die away
  • Leaving nothing but broken promises
  • Where there once was small town dreams
  • And Ive watched the flat cars
  • Take away our timber
  • Ive watched the coal cars steal our rock
  • And now that weve got
  • Nothing left to take were told
  • That the tv station will be closing,
  • Main street windows will need boarding,
  • That these foolish dreams must stop
