"A Train Not Running" as written by Stacy Dean Campbell and Chris Knight....
The sound of a train not running
Has been keeping me awake
The Westmore land mine ain't run much coal
Since back in '88
Got on at the sawmill
But I've got to find a better way
Or the sound of a train not running
Is gonna carry me away

[Chorus]
And every time you look at me, Mary
I want to tell you someday
We'll leave the sound of a train not running
A thousand miles away

I don't want to risk my freedom
Growing crops on company land
But it'd be a damned sight better
Than a government check in my hand
I used to bring home good money
You used to drive a decent car
But now we go to town on Saturday
It seems a little too far

[Chorus]

Now some nights when our baby cries
I feel a twinge of fear
When the sound of a train not running
Is the only thing I hear

[Chorus]
