I feel like an orphan train
heading down the track
with only the discarded
lying on my back
meet me at the station
I've got a tale to tell
it may not make much difference
but I sure do tell it well
I feel like an orphan train
I feel like an orphan train

I feel like an orphan train
where nobody asks why
and the whole town turns out
to watch the kids go by
hear the crying in the nighttime
see their eyes in the day
I'll take you somewhere better
if someone leads the way
I feel like an orphan train
I feel like an orphan train

load me up with children
load me up with coal
open up my windows
and watch me grow old

I feel like an orphan train
a witness to the crime
where grown-ups do the deed
and children do the time
I wish I could blow a whistle
that everyone could hear
and this track would lead me somewhere
where God's will is clear
I feel like an orphan train
I feel like an orphan train

load me up with children
load me up with coal
open up my windows
and watch me grow old

I feel like an orphan train
heading down the track
with only the discarded
lying on my back
