Artist's Description

The Puffing Billy Song
by
Hesterman/Meaghe

For Gerard Rotse

I’m standing on the station
Waiting for the train
Because I made myself a promise
I’d ride that train again
I’m waiting for the whistle
Listening for the bell
Hoping that the guard will say
The words I remember well

Rock with me roll with me
Rock with me roll with me
As the trains goes along
Rock with me roll with me
Rock with me roll with me
That’s the Puffing Billy song

The train left the station
Blowing steam and smoke
With a carriage full of children
So excited no-one spoke
Hanging out their feet
Was there ever a day so fine!
Waving to all the people
Come to watch the train go by

The train climbed the mountains
Over bridges and bends
Lost in the trees
Where do they end?
And down into the valley
The wheels going clickety-clack
I started wishing there was no going back

Sunshine through the clouds
The mountains out of view
We stopped at the station
Time to say adeiu
And if we ever get the chance my friend
We’ll go you and I
Ride with the guard,
Sing his song
And watch the day go by
