The Engineer's Child Recorded by Hank Snow [3/4 time] written by Harry Neal, Maggie Andrews, H.A. King
C G A little child on a sickbed lay C G And death was very near
G She was the pride and only child A7 D7 Of a railroad engineer
His duty had called him from those he loved
G And seeing that hope was dim
While a tear he shed to his wife he said
G Just have two lanterns trimmed
Just hang a light as I pass tonight
D7 Hang it where it can be seen
If our baby's dead just show the red
D7 G If she's better then show the green
G In a little house by the railroad track
G A mother with watchful eyes
C G Saw a gleam of hope and a feeble smile
D7 As the train went rushing by
G Just one short look was his only chance D7 G To see the light agleam
In the midnight air there a rose a prayer
G Thank God the light was green
