Faith In The Train (vocal by Ea Birkett)
Daniel Ross (SOCAN 2000)


From that rain-soaked town to Ontario snow
Keep a ticket for him and send him home
To see his darlin' Down the Eastern end of the line
I met him last winter in Calgary
I was workin' for a tea-sellin' company
He was headin' for the West Coast
Hopin' for a job in the woods

Send him by rail
Roll him over the mountains
Mile after mile
O'er the open Prairie
Deliver him by rail
Send him straight to his angel
I've got faith in your train
Roll him home to my arms

He's been savin' up his extra for a year and a month Got to get him back East down to Hamilton
To see his sweetheart
We'll be together in a love so fine
He'll have blisters and bruises
From knockin' down trees
He's been prayin' for fortune to set us free
I want so much to give him
The silver and gold of my dreams

Send him by rail
On a horse made of iron
Mile after mile
O'er the open Prairie
Deliver him by rail
Send him home to his angel
I've got faith in your train boys
Roll him home to my arms
