Ghost Train

I took the cannonball down to the ocean
Across the desert from the sea to shining sea
I rode a ladder that climbed across the nation
Fifty million feet of earth between the buried and me

"How do you do?"
She said "Hey, how do you do?"

She buys a ticket cause it’s cold were she comes from
She climbes aboard because she’s scared of getting older in the snow
Love is a ghost train rumbling through the darkness
Hold on to me darling I’ve got nowhere else to go

"How do you do?"
She said "Hey, how do you do?"

I took the cannonball down to the ocean
Watched the diesel dissapear beneath the tumbling waves
Love is a ghost train howling on the radio
"Rember everything" she said "When only memory remains"

"How do you do?"
She said "Hey, how do you do?"
