Flatt And Scruggs - East Bound Train

Flatt And Scruggs
The east bound train was crowded one cold December day
The conductor shouted, "Tickets" in his old- time fashioned way
A little girl, in sadness , her hair as bright as gold
She said< " I have no ticket" and then her story told

"My father he's in prison he's lost his sight they say
I'm going to beg his pardon this cold December day
ac.guitar

My mother's daily sewing to try to earn our bread
My poor dear old blind father in prison almost dead
My brother and my sister would both be mighty glad,
If I could only bring back my poor, dear , old blind Dad"

The conductor could not answer he could not make a reply
While looking at this little one he brushed a teardrop from his eye
"Do not fear my little one just stay right where you are
You'll never need a ticket while I am on this car"
