  • Union Station, tombstone high
    No more tears, this fountain dry
    Nameless faces, just headlines
    We don't ride that train no more

    No resistance, turn my head
    They could go out East instead
    Newfoundland, land of my father
    I don't ride your train no more

    Cold steel shining, Battle Creek
    Eyes are heavy, rain and sea
    Massey-Ferguson memories
    Don't ride that train no more

    Hey there captain, is that you
    Could you tell me, tell me what to do
    I been twenty years on that Soo line
    We don't ride your train no more

    Smoke rises from the face of sand
    Dreams about, dreams of beaver dams
    Sam can't hear quite like he used to
    Tell them why we don't ride no more

    Hey Pierre Trudeau oh, where are you?
    My friend to lead us through
    These hard times, so much confusion
    I don't hear your train no more

    I can't ride no more (repeat) Writer/s: DANIEL LANOIS
