"Trolley Wood" as written by and Sherri/dupree Dupree....
Out one day, walking one day
Out one day with you, hallelujah
We found a wood with trolleys on wheels
Rolling all around the hills, hallelujah

And just as soon as it had slipped into sleepy dusk
And it's not very likely that we'll see it again
Out one day, walking one day
Out one day with you, hallelujah
We found a wood, we unfound a wood
And then we cried, oh no
Please tell me, will we ever find it again?

In the depths of Trolley Wood, do Trolleys still drive?
Gone for the day to the Trolley Wood
I'm gone for the day to the Trolley Wood
The Trolley Wood is taking me away

    General CommentThis song always reminds me of Mr. Rogers so, to me, it's about leaving childhood and having to face the ugly, unfantastical world and wanting to go back.

    General Commenti think it's about a couple finding this fantastic place to escape to but they're afraid they will never see again. Like almost all of Eisley's songs, this one is particularly symbolic. I love songs like that, one's that aren't literal and aren't all "oh, i love you baby, you're so hot, oh let's have sex." That's wat I love about Eisley

    General CommentThis song is so adorable. I think it's nice how she says 'Hallelujah' after saying 'out one day with you' like it's such a wonderful thing to be with that person. I'm not really good with these meanings but that's just something I really like about this song. But I also agree with Geekette as far as having to face the real world after being stuck in oh, glorious and fake childhood. She wants to see it again but knows she'll never find it.

    General Commenti think its about remembering a place in your life whether it's just you or it's with a person, then wanting to go back to that place and wondering if maybe you'll ever have it again.. idk if that made any sense. love the song. love eisley.

    General CommentI think it's about finding something, and loving it and wanting to keep it with you forever, but have to let it go.
    I like the meaning about the childhood thing I couldn't agree more.
    lovely song, just lovely.

    General CommentSherri DuPree is a fan of Ray Bradbury, so it may have something to do with Dandelion Wine. It makes a lot of sense that it could be about D.W.
