lyrics

THEY’LL BE TRAINS IN THE FUTURE (key of G)
© Bob Wright
(chorus)
They’ll be trains in the future
When we run out of gas
They’ll be people at the depot
Waiting for the train to pass
Everyone will be downtown
Instead of at the mall
They’ll be trains in the future
When we run out of oil
Stoke a locomotive with another load of coal
Stoke a locomotive with another load of coal
Stoke it, stoke it, stoke it…

You can get on in Milwaukee and get off in Alabam’
Ride a sleeper car from Baltimore
Straight out cross the land
People will be waving at you
When you’re rolling through
They’ll be trains in the future
And buddy that’s the truth

(chorus)

You’ll have time to read the paper
You’ll have time to read a book
You may even meet a neighbor
That you somehow overlooked
You can sit back and relax
And let the world go slidin’ by
They’ll be trains in the future
So get aboard and ride

(chorus)
