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've got a ticket on a silver train
leaving at quarter to four.
I 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 the 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.


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.
