File Number 12: Ghost Train
In the boot of a forgotten cowboy, beside the rattlesnake bones along the dusty tracks, I found a parchment about an old cowboy legend. It told of a ghost train that takes away lonesome drifters steered by the phantom conductor Santiago. 


A campfire burns on a starry night
The men are there under a lantern's light
The cowboy sings of a hidden pain
His brother taken by a ghost train

Can't you hear, hear it coming?
Whistle blows late into the night
"All aboard!" on the ghost train
Cowboys doomed to ride the train in fright
Santiago, ghost conductor
Steers the train from town to town
Picking up lonesome strangers
And the train is Mexico bound

Gho, oh, oh, oh, oh, ost train
Gho, oh, oh, oh, oh, ost train

Mexico is cold at night
The station is a deserted sight
No one knows when it will pass
The only sound is Santiago's laugh!

Can't you hear, hear it coming?
Whistle blows late into the night
"All aboard!" on the ghost train
Cowboys doomed to ride the train in fright
Santiago, ghost conductor
Steers the train from town to town
Picking up lonesome strangers
And the train is Mexico bound

¡Vamos!
(Spanish guitar solo)

Can't you hear, hear it coming?
Whistle blows late into the night
"All aboard!" on the ghost train
Cowboys doomed to ride the train in fright
Santiago, ghost conductor
Steers the train from town to town
Picking up lonesome strangers
And the train is Mexico bound

 

ps:  Santiago is a bus driver in Ottawa, Canada! hehe
