Buffalo: National Train Day

It was the army train that took her daddy from her
It was the bible train that took her mother too
And that high loud whistle made her horse run away
But the straw that broke the camel's back was you

It was the government train that took away her childhood
It was the KKK that took away her past
It was the white man's will that hers be broken
But that barefoot girl could run too fast

In the wheat fields of Montana she's always riding on dead rails
Bound to live and bound to fail
And in a park in San Francisco her mama shrieks about the lord
And down the dead rails there's an echo
The wind is whistling "all aboard"

It was the wagon train that took away her country
It was the oil train that took away her land
And she could have been the belle of the Ponderosa
But that was not the fat man's plan

Because the world's too cold for a girl like that
With a blackfoot soul and a cowboy hat
Everything she loved went down the dragon track
She had a fear of trains
