Time Is A Train

Written By: Doug Healy


When I was 13 my grandmother died,
I helped carry her through the snow.
I stood by the grave in an old overcoat
And my father’s long black tie.

Time is a train it rolls, it rolls;
I keep looking back down the track.
So many days have come and gone
And we’ll never get those days back.

20 Years later, my mother’s mother died;
Her heart was battered and frail.
She was small and beautiful;
I hadn’t seen her in years.

Time is a train it rolls, it rolls;
I keep looking back down the track.
So many days have come and gone
And we'll never get those days back.

There’s Connie and Doran and Jimmy and Joe,
And so many others besides.
Though they’re all gone time rolls on
And we have to keep rolling too.

Time is a train, it rolls, it rolls;
I keep looking back down the track.
So many days have come and gone
And we'll never get those days back.

So I hope life is long for all my friends,
My parents, my brothers, my wife.
And when we’re done I hope that we
Get to start over again.

'Cause time is a train, it rolls it rolls;
I keep looking back down the track.
So many days have come and gone
And we'll never get those days back.
