The Greenville Trestle High
recorded by Ricky Skaggs
C                          F              C
I remember as a boy how in wonderment and joy
I'd watch the trains as they'd go by
        C                                  F               C
And the whistle's lonesome sound you could hear from miles around
                           G7                 C
As they rolled across that Greenville Trestle high
        F                              C
But the whistles don't sound like they used to
Lately not many trains go by
     C                             F                   C
Hard times across the land mean no work for a railroad man
                               G7            C
And the Greenville Trestle now don't seem so high
                                  F               C
On the riverbank I'd stand with a cane pole in my hand
And watch the freight trains up against the sky
         C                                 F               C
With the black smoke trailing back as they moved along the track
                      G7                 C
That runs across that Greenville Trestle high
Repeat #2
                                      F                  C
When the lonesome whistles whined I'd get rambling on my mind
Lord I wish they still sounded that way
     C                            F                    C
As I turned to head for home Lord she'd rumble low and long
                     G7           C
Toward the sunset at the close of day
Repeat #2
