The Crossing

Days spent serving tables
Evenings serve the kid
You think you got it tougher
Than your grandma ever did
Nights you hear the whistle blowing
How do you get where the train is going

Beat the train to the crossing
Slip across the track
Sometimes you make it
Sometimes you don’t come back

Nights at Pete’s Saloon
Spend time inside your beers
Remember running down the wind
Golden high school years
Now you can’t find time from day to day
But it found time to slip away

Beat the train to the crossing
Slip across the track
Sometimes you make it
Sometimes you don’t come back

You gotta ride that train
Or let it pass you by
Don’t think you can gain
On it when you hear that whistle cry
Ain’t no way you come out on top
You know that train ain’t gonna stop
You know that train… ain’t gonna stop!
