Gino Vannelli – Ghost Train Lyrics

Hear the train whistle blow rolling down the line
Come to rescue this heart of mine
Hear the rumble and roar of the moonlight express
Our one last chance at a better world than this
(All aboard)
A better world than this
(All aboard)
Every traveler sat silent as a stone
A lot like but not quite flesh and bone
Yet I would not be dulled or driven to fright
By a train of the lost souls in the half light
Then a voice
From a hooded robe
Of black
Whispered, "Pale to me, here we go
There ain’t no
Turning back"
"All aboard", cried the train guy
Make ready for your magic mountain ride
Say goodbye to the world down below us
Here’s your one-way ticket to the other side
All aboard, the ghost train
Drop all your trappings at the door
Wave goodbye to the boy in the window
You won’t be seeing him anymore
Whoa, oh, whoa, whoa
Like a bat outta hell we shot into space
While down below in the blue-green glow, I saw a weeping face
It was the face of a child that cut me to the bone
And I heard him say, "Don’t go away, a-papa please come home"
Had no clue
As to who was crying
In the dark
But it hurt so bad
That I certainly had
A change of heart
"All aboard", cried the train guy
Make ready for your magic mountain ride
Say goodbye to the world down below us
Here’s your one-way ticket to the other side
All aboard, the ghost train
Drop all your trappings at the door
Wave goodbye to the boy in the window
You won’t be seeing him anymore
(All aboard)
Oh no no
(All aboard)
Oh no no, whoa, whoa
And so I left off the train, fell into my skin
Through mountains of Peru back to the land of the living
To a cottage in the woods into the arms of a woman
Who held my head to her belly and a-said, "We’re gonna have a son"
(We’re gonna have son)
Mmh, we’re gonna have son
(We’re gonna have son)
All aboard
All aboard
All aboard
The ghost train
