Chapter One

The tracks are rusty which once were bright, There's green grass growing where the stones were white, There's no whistle blowing here day or night, That's because ... The train doesn't run, The train doesn't run, No, the train doesn't run by here anymore. The tracks go on forever or so it seems, Maybe to a land of fairytales and dreams, Where golden fish flash in sparkling streams, And ... The train doesn't run, The train doesn't run, No, the train doesn't run by here anymore. Once we had to listen when we came by here, Rabbits would run from the engine in fear, Once the earth trembled when the engine came near, But ... The train doesn't run, The train doesn't run, The train doesn't run by here anymore. Now there are lots of wildflowers swaying in the breeze, Frog sounds, cricket chirps and wind in the trees, And I can walk by here now whenever I please, Because ...The train doesn't run, The train doesn't run, No, the train doesn't run by here Anymore.
