Engineer's Child Harry Neal - Maggie Andrews - H.A. King Hank Snow A little child on a sickbed lay And death was very near She was the pride and only child Of a railroad engineer. His duty had called him from those he loved And seeing that hope was dim While a tear he shed to his wife he said Just have two lanterns trimmed. Just hang a light as I pass tonight Hang it where it can be seen If our baby's dead just show the red If she's better then show the green. --- Instrumental --- In a little house by the railroad track A mother with watchful eyes Saw a gleam of hope and a feeble smile As the train went rushing by. Just one short look was his only chance To see the light agleam In the midnight air there arose a prayer Thank God they shown green. Just hang a light as I pass tonight Hang it where it can be seen If our baby's dead just show the red If she's better then show the green... (Contributed by Corey Walker - November 2007)
