lyrics

Birds & Freight Trains
by Alaska Gold Rush

I feel the ocean breeze, the smell of broken cars
Lonesome promises held in Chickasaw Park
The path I’m following leads me to why I’ve been here
A second to burn, a life to heal

The streets were filled with soldiers and sunday walks
We were young and free and longing for midnight talks
I grabbed your hand and wished you’d never be leaving
Who knows when it was, in 44 or something

You went back to the battlefield, to pain and blood
For all I know winter was cold then and you hit the rough
Back home time was fair to you with friends all around
That’s when the tree fell down on you in a roaring sound

I've been living out there
Among the wheat plains
Nothing ever stops in here no more
But birds and freight trains

I wrote letters by the millions to address unknown
Maybe I should have written words on them, a word’s like home
I changed my mind at least 85 times
I know where I’m bound but I’m doing alright

The Indian arrow heads I treasure show me where I come from
The 33’s keep singing those lovely songs
I wonder if you’d ever remember my name
And I’ll never get back to Louisville again

There stand the years between now and then
You’re still young somewhere as my hair turns grey and
No children will ever dance around me
At least not mine, at least I’m free
