The Engineers Child

Song Author Harry Neal , Maggie Andrews og H.A. King Lyrics by: Harry Neal , Maggie Andrews og H.A. King Performer: Hank Snow Submitted by: Anonymous
[G]A little child on a [C]sickbed [G]lay  
And [C]death was very [G]near
She was the pride and [C]only [G]child
Of a [A7]railroad engin[D7]eer   

[G]His duty had [D7]called him from [G]those he loved
And [D7]seeing that hope was [G]dim  
While a tear he [G7]shed to his [C]wife he said
Just [G]have two [D7]lanterns [G]trimmed

[C]Just hang a light as I [G]pass tonight
Hang it where it can be [D7]seen   
If our [G]baby's dead just [C]show the red
If she's [G]better then [D7]show the [G]green

In a little house by the [C]railroad [G]track
A [C]mother with watchful [G]eyes
Saw a gleam of hope and a [C]feeble [G]smile
As the [A7]train went rushing [D7]by   

Just [G]one short [D7]look was his [G]only chance
To [D7]see the light [G]agleam
In the midnight [G7]air there a [C]rose a prayer
Thank [G]God the [D7]light was [G]green

[C]Just hang a light as I [G]pass tonight
Hang it where it can be [D7]seen   
If our [G]baby's dead just [C]show the red
If she's [G]better then [D7]show the [G]green

A little child on a sickbed lay
And death was very near
She was the pride and only child
Of a railroad engineer

His duty had called him from those he loved
And seeing that hope was dim
While a tear he shed to his wife he said
Just have two lanterns trimmed

Just hang a light as I pass tonight
Hang it where it can be seen
If our baby's dead just show the red
If she's better then show the green

In a little house by the railroad track
A mother with watchful eyes
Saw a gleam of hope and a feeble smile
As the train went rushing by

Just one short look was his only chance
To see the light agleam
In the midnight air there a rose a prayer
Thank God the light was green

Just hang a light as I pass tonight
Hang it where it can be seen
If our baby's dead just show the red
If she's better then show the green
