Journey

Giant iron girders passing by,
Cold steel structure, stronger than I,
Takes me away, far from you,
The Lomond Hills fade from view.

A battered suitcase, tied with string,
I'm a little used like that old thing,
In a train going down the line,
Turn and look, for one last time.

Leave the roof-tops of the city,
As a stranger view each green field,
The steel rails sing a song of pity
To soothe a wound that's never healed.

They sing a song of life's adventure,
For the traveller, perhaps, a happier day,
Though the spirit is bruised
And the heart is broken,
You will journey forever,
That's what they say.

Iron girders passing by,
Cold steel bridge, stronger than I.
In a train going down the line,
Turn and look, for one last time.

For a girl who waved at trains
