Roger Whittaker - The Good Old EAR&H Lyrics

Oh the good old EAR&H would get me there on time
Those mighty engines rolling down the line
And no boy ever had a railway quite as fine as mine
Oh, The good old EAR&H
The good old EAR&H

Now when I was a kid I used to play
While the train would rock and roll and swing and sway
And as she pulled us up the grade, slowing all the way
Oh this is what the wheels would have to say
We would sing along with what they had to say
They’d say no I can’t, no I can’t, no I can’t, no I can’t, no I can’t, no I
can’t again
And they’d say no I can’t, no I can’t, no I can’t, that train, oh that
train

Oh the good old EAR&H would get me there on time
Those mighty engines rolling down the line
And no boy ever had a railway quite as fine as mine
Oh, The good old EAR&H
The good old EAR&H

Now when I was a kid I’d ride the train
That took me up to school and home again
At the end of school aboard that train unholy joy would reign
At the downward grade the wheels would keep on saying
At the downward grade the wheels would keep on saying
And they’d say Yes I can, yes I can, yes I can, yes I can, can, can, can,
can, can, can, can, can, can,
Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes I can,
And they’d say yes I can, yes I can, yes I can, can, can, can, can, can,
can, yes I can, Oh yes I can

Oh the good old EAR&H would get me there on time
Those mighty engines rolling down the line
And no boy ever had a railway quite as fine as mine
Oh, The good old EAR&H
The good old EAR&H

Now somehow it just don’t seem the same
They’re using diesel fuel to pull that train
The old wood burners sitting down in a museum
You don’t ride ‘em you just go there and see ‘em
Oh it’s sad to see them stand in a museum

The good old EAR&H would get me there on time
Those mighty engines rolling down the line
And no boy ever had a railway quite as fine as mine
Oh, The good old EAR&H
The good old EAR&H
