Lyrics

I hopped a freight down through Oregon    

Heading west on a Columbia run

Across the tracks those oil men live like kings

And they’ll likely make a mess of things

 

The environment wont be the same.

Salmon don’t spawn 

The food chain is gone, Oil Train

 

Went off track here in Interbay

Rolled the dice and we are lucky to say

Here In Seattle there was No loss of life

Remains a battle, huh! you just pay a fine

 

Society knows who to blame

And the governments role

Selling their soul, Oil Train

FG

Trains, that stretch a mile or longer        D

Shame, there needs to be a resource in place, 

To make it safe

 

A lightning storm, wind and pouring rain

Some act of God we have yet to explain

A terrorist or some drunken driver

lobbyists that holding Feet to the fire

 

They chose to forgo being safe

Salmon don’t spawn 

The food chain is gone, Oil Train

 

trains, 100 cars or longer

explain, 

the threat is getting stronger to face
