Elizabeth - A Slow Train Song

Rezwan Razani - August 23, 2013

In an interview with the BBC Ken Blackler, of ITER said: “...The train of Iter is now moving, and we’re really working towards building Iter and then getting it operating.”  Time for a slow train song!  This one by Catie Curtis - @CatieSpeak.

Lyrics:

I talk to you on the telephone
At least two times a day
From hotels and truck stops
When I’ve been too long gone away
And I can see Cincinnati
From the Kentucky side
Though I can’t walk between them
When I look out on the night

I see a slow train crossing the bridge
Over the Ohio River
She bends and she winds and she’s taking her time
But nobody can stop her
From headlights through all ninety two box cars
She will not rest
And so too, I move toward you
My love, Elizabeth

You know I must be traveling
You know that’s who I am
You knew it when you met me
And you knew it when we wed
I’d do anything to ease you now
You say, “Baby just hold on
Let’s try a little patience
This longing’s gonna make us strong”

And there’s a slow train crossing the bridge
Over the Ohio River
She bends and she winds and she’s taking her time
But nobody can stop her
From midnight through all hours ‘till the morning
She won’t rest
And so too, I move toward you
My love, Elizabeth

Steady and strong
On and on
My love
