. John Gorka -The Mercy of the wheels  
 
 

 

I heard a train calling
Through the middle of the night
I heard the whistle And the mercy of the wheels
It's a hand to mouth existence
In a mouth to nothing world
I was longing
For the way I used to feel

I'd like to catch a train
That could go back in time
That could make a lot of stops
Along the way
I would go to see me Father
With the eyes he left behind
I would go for all the words
I'd like to say
And I'd take along a sandwich
And a picture of my girl
And show them all
That I made out ok

I heard a train calling
Through the middle of the night
And I wondered if I
Should have gotten on
'Cause a train knows where it's going
And when it's time to go
And that it looks best
When it's already gone
