Schwa Lyrics

Silver Train

Lyricist: Dave Katz
Vocalist: Dave Katz
I used to dream when I was young, of a man who traveled around
Rollin' over the vast terrain,by the drone of a steam engine sound
I dreamt of good lands and badlands
And places with mountains of snow
Rivers rushing through the canyons to valleys below

I got a ticket on a silver train, taking a countrywide tour
I got a ticket on a silver train, leaving at quarter to four
Iíll go alone, through the unknown
I might have flown, but I wanted to see even more
'Til it comes, I'll be waiting by the station door

When I had grown, I realized that I was the man on that train
Came upon me like a winter storm, when I saw what my dreams were saying
Three thousands miles as the crow flies
And all places in between.
I had to see everything that I hadn't seen

I got a ticket on a silver train, taking a countrywide tour
I got a ticket on a silver train, leaving at quarter to four
Iíll go alone, through the unknown
I might have flown, but I wanted to see even more
'Til it comes, I'll be waiting by the station door

Just a half an hour and I'll be on my way, to follow the course of my dream
Gonna find out all for myself, if things can be just as they seem
As I roll across the country
I'll always keep in mind
Natural beauty is the best beauty I'll ever find

I got a ticket on a silver train, taking a countrywide tour
I got a ticket on a silver train, leaving at quarter to four
Iíll go alone, through the unknown
I might have flown, but I wanted to see even more
'Til it comes, I'll be waiting by the station door
'Til it comes, I'll be waiting by the station door
