ENGINEERS DON'T WAVE FROM THE TRAINS ANYMORE (Tom T. Hall) Tom T. Hall& Earl Scruggs - 1982 The engineers don't wave from the trains anymore Not like they did back in nineteen-fifty-four They've got computers and diesels and things And the engineers don't wave from the trains anymore The engineers don't wave from the trains When I was a little boy, I'd hang around the tracks Watchin' them trains goin' to Louisville and back I had my dreams and I had my plans I was gonna be an engineer man But the engineers don't wave from the trains anymore Not like they did back in nineteen-fifty-four They got computers and diesels and things And the engineers don't wave from the trains anymore The engineers don't wave from the trains (Instrumental Break) Them big old trains used to chugga-chug and spew They were my heroes and they knew that I knew No matter how far they snaked down the track They'd go somewhere and they'd turn around, come back Oh, but the engineers don't wave from the trains anymore Not like they did back in nineteen-fifty-four They got computers and diesels and things And the engineers don't wave from the trains anymore The engineers don't wave from the trains There's more important things that's changin' the world The engineers forgot all us little boys and girls Still get a faraway look in my eye when I hear an ole train in the night And the engineers don't wave from the trains anymore The engineers don't wave from the trains Psh-h-h-h-h-h-h-h-h (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - May 2012)
