"Sunset Train: The Song"

Before I wrote the story, I wrote the song. 
And now we've released it as a single.

"THE SUNSET TRAIN." 

(Intro recitation): 
"Since his wife passed away, 
the old man spent a lot of time with memory things. 
He'd sit by the hour, 
and stare at the old picture of The Sunset Train, 
and talk to her like she was still right there by his side." 

(1st verse. She sings): 
I remember the day you gave that picture to me. 
You hung it on the wall and called me to come and see. 
Our little apartment had windows looking out on an alley, 
But the picture on the wall was like a window to a beautiful valley. 

(Chorus. Both sing): 
The picture on the wall Seemed like a windowpane, 
with the steam risin' high in the sky above a lonesome plain. 
We could almost hear the old locomotive strain, 
And the red caboose was followin' The Sunset Train 

(2nd verse. He sings): 
Years of love went by and now you're gone. 
I don't want to face another lonesome dawn. 
When the mail and the papers start piling up in the hall, 
The neighbors'll come in, 
And find the picture still on the wall. 

(Chorus. Both sing): 
And the picture on the wall will seem like a windowpane, 
With the steam risin' high in the sky above a lonesome plain,
And they'll almost hear the old locomotive strain, 
(He sings): 
But I'll be gone, and so will The Sunset Train. 
(Both sing): 
We'll be gone, and so will The Sunset Train. 

We'll be gone, 
and so will The Sunset Train.
