John Denver – Daddy, What’s A Train?

Daddy what’s a train? Is it something I can ride?
Does it carry lots of grown-up folks and little kids inside?
Is it bigger than our house? Well how can I explain
When my little boy and girl ask me “Daddy what’s a train?”

When I was just a boy and living by the track
Us kids would gather up the coal in big ‘ole gunnysacks
Then we heard the warning sound as the train pulled into view
The engineer would smile and wave as she went rolling through

She blew so loud and clear, we had to cover up our ears
And we counted cars just as high as we could go
I can almost hear the steam those big old drivers scream
A sound my little kids will never know

Daddy what’s a train? Is it something I can ride?
Does it carry lots of grown-up folks and little kids inside?
Is it bigger than our house? Well how can I explain
When my little boy and girl ask me “Daddy what’s a train?”

I guess the times have changed, kids are different now
‘Cause some don’t even seem to know the milk comes from a cow
My little boy can tell the names of all the baseball stars
I remember how I memorized the names on railroad cars

The Wabash and the TP, Lackawanna, the IC
The Nickel-Plate and the good old Santa Fe
Just names out of the past, I guess they’re fading fast
Every time I hear my little boy say

Daddy what’s a train? Is it something I can ride?
Does it carry lots of grown-up folks and little kids inside?
Is it bigger than our house? Well how can I explain
When my little boy and girl ask me “Daddy what’s a train?”

We climbed into the car, drove down into town
Right out the depot house, but no one was around
We searched the yard togheter for something I could show
But I know there hadn’t been a train for a dozen years or so

All the things I did when I was just a kid
How far away those memories appear
I guess it’s plain to see they still mean a lot to me
‘Cause my ambition was to be an engineer

Daddy what’s a train? Is it something I can ride?
Does it carry lots of grown-up folks and little kids inside?
Is it bigger than our house? Well how can I explain
When my little boy and girl ask me “Daddy what’s a train?”
