Blues/Rock song. Jay Ramsey helped by playing harmonica and added some fine guitar playing and I recorded everything else at my recording studio in Las Vegas. Reminisce about the old steam engine train and how you could hear it coming.

Story behind the song
My Grandfather in Texas had a saying everytime he would hear the train go behind our house----he would always say, "Trains a camin', Howed you knew---I heer'ed it blew". Well, I didn't think most people would know that it was some kind of Southern Slang---so I wrote this with more recognizable lyrics.
Lyrics
Trains A Comin’ Trains A Comin, How’d I Knew I Heard that lonesome whistle blew I remember that lonely sound All my memories goin’ round and round Lay a penny on the railroad track watch the wheels squash it, as you run right back It don’t take much when you got time to kill Anything at all will give you a thrill That’s the way it was when I was a kid Learn’n from life that’s the way it was did (then). Keep it simple and never tell a lie Use a firm hand shake---and look’m in the eye. Trains A Comin’ Here it comes Trains A Comin’ Here in comes. Instrumental My Grandad told me---Son, just this one thing Even thou you’re reachin for that big brass ring You sign on to work---like it or not Give “The Man” your best---the best that you’ve got. Trains A Comin’ that’s for sure Trains A Comin’ that’s for sure I remember that lonesome sound All my memories goin’ round and roung That’s the way it was when I was a kid Learn’n from life that’s the way it was did (then). Keep it simple and never tell a lie Use a firm hand shake ---and look’m in the eye. Trains A Comin’ here it comes Trains a Comin’ Hear it comes.
