The walls are built up stone by stone
And the train conductor says
We've been on this shift too long"
And the train conductor says
We can reach our destination but we're still a ways away"
I saw a tree house on the outskirts of the farm.
Bells are ringing through the town again,

"Take a break Driver 8, Driver 8 take a break

Way to put myself to sleep.
Way to put myself, my children to sleep.
He piloted this song in a plane like that one.
Locomotive 8, Southern Crescent, hear the bells ring again.

"Take a break Driver 8, Driver 8 take a break
And the train conductor says
We can reach our destination, but we're still a ways away"
