Station Man

Martin Sexton

Down around the reservation
Up around the bend
Lies a lazy little ghost town
In a god forsaken land
Set up on the platform
Wringing his hands
Humming a crazy old number
Its the station man
He sings about sweet Virginia
Sweetest in the land
Said she'd come on back for me
Just soon as she can
And the rusty track laughs a cold phrase in the sun
You see the last train left here 1971
I can still hear the children on the fourth of July
Down at the general store there was a gas pump
And the church bells that ring on Sunday
Then he turns his head on easterly
Raises his hand
Pointing his shaky finger
As he tries to take a stand
U.S. highway number one hundred twenty three
Laid concrete and steel where my house used to be
I can still hear those children
Singing in the schoolyard
Lemonade on the back porch
As the sun went down
Rocking chair and my memories
Sold them for chump change
Sold them off to folks like you coming around
