When Jenny was a little girl she only dreamed of trains
Jenny counted boxcars instead of countin' sheep

She was livin' in another time you could see it in her eyes
Waitin' for the train that was never comin' back
Jenny dreamed of trains
Nobody knew how she made it come true

There hasn't been a train through here since the mill went bust
Said she was just a little girl actin' kinda strange
Jenny dreamed of trains
Nobody knew how she made it come true

In God we trust she walked away
Was a little piece of copper squashed flatter than a dime
Nobody knew how she made it come true
