Union Station Lyrics

Union Station

© Barry Sullivan & Charlie Ball

1) There’s a lady in our town, who’s known for miles aroundunion station
As the grand old dame of transportation
She’s alabaster white, like a beacon day and night
And she goes by the name of Union Station

Chorus
She’s seen the hopes and dreams of men,
and welcomed them back home again
Spirit of this land, Friend to the travelin’ man,
Forever may she stand, Union Station

2) When she was in her prime, it was a restless time
As she sent her sons and daughters ‘cross this nation
But wherever they did roam, they’d always come back home
To the warm, waiting arms of Union Station

Chorus

3) When war would be declared, not even she was spared
As her marbled halls would fill with fighting men
She sent them down the track knowing some would not be back
Still hoping to embrace them once again

Chorus

4) The horseless carriage trend, was the beginning of the end
Though years went by before she felt the yearning
And she must have been surprised, when she finally realized,
That more trains were leaving than returning

Chorus

5) Now she’s been here through the years, seen a million smiles and tears
She served our town and helped to grow our nation
And there’ll be no requiem for this grand old Worcester gem
Who goes by the name of Union Station

Chorus
