The Sandman, the Brakeman and Me

Album: Monsters of Folk (2009)
  • The Brakeman is letting off some steam,
    This has to be the slowest train that I have ever seen
    and the Sandman's waiting to deliver me my dream,
    Guess I'll lay my head against my elbow and the window

    Watch the wheels go,
    Watch the wheels go,

    Roll on, Roll on oh little train
    Brakeman blow your whistle, throw your weight upon the chain
    Make way, for whatever will be, will be
    Between the Sandman, the Brakeman, and me.

    And the Sandman's waiting to deliver me my dream,
    Deliver me my dream, deliver me my dream,
    Today

    Guess I'll lay my head against my elbow and the window
    Let my wheels go, let my wheels go

    Let my wheels go

    Roll on roll, on oh little train
    Brakeman blow your whistle
    Throw your weight upon the chain.

    Now make way,
    Whatever will be, will be,
    For the sandman, the brakeman, and me.

    Roll on, roll on oh little train,
    Brakeman blow your whistle,
    Throw your weight upon the chain

    Oh make way, whatever will be, will be
    for the sandman, the brakeman and me. Writer/s: M. WARD
