Last of the Steam-Powered Trains

Ray Davies, released on The Kinks Are the Village Green Preservation Society, © Noma Music, Inc./Hi-Count Music, Inc. BMI 1968

.

Like the last of the good ol' puffer trains,

I'm the last of the blood and sweat brigade,

And I don't know where I'm going, or why I came.

I'm the last of the good old fashioned steam-powered trains.

.

I'm the last of the good old renegades.

All my friends are all middle class and grey,

But I live in a museum, so I'm okay.

I'm the last of the good old fashioned steam-powered trains.

.

Like the last of the good ol' choo-choo trains,

Huff and puff 'till I blow this world away,

And I'm gonna keep on rollin' till my dying day.

I'm the last of the good old fashioned steam-powered trains.

.

Like the last of the good ol' puffer trains,

I'm the last of the soot and scum[?] brigade,

And all this peaceful living is drivin' me insane.

I'm the last of the good old fashioned steam-powered trains.

I'm the last of the good old fashioned steam-powered trains.
