ghost train lyrics – counting crows

i took the cannonball down to the ocean,
across the desert from sea to shining sea,
i rode a ladder that climbs across the nation,
fifty million feet of earth between the buried and me,
how do you do? she said, hey, how do you do?

she buys a ticket ’cause it’s cold where she comes from,
she climbs aboard because she’s scared of getting older in the snow,
love is a ghost train rumbling through the darkness,
hold on to me darling, i’ve got nowhere else to go,
how do you do? she said, hey, how do you do? hey, yeah.

i took the cannonball down to the ocean,
watched the diesel disappear beneath the tumbling waves,
love is a ghost train howling on the radio,
remember everything she said, when only memory remains.
how do you do? she said, hey, how do you do?
hey how do you do? she said, hey, how do you do?
