Song Meaning
Verse 1
I took the cannonball down to the ocean
Across the desert from sea to shining sea
I rode a ladder that climbs across the nation
Fifty million feet of earth between the buried and me
Verse 2
"How do you do?"
She said, "Hey, how do you do?"
Verse 3
She buys a ticket 'cause it's cold where she comes from
She climbs aboard because she's scared of getting older in the snow
Love is a ghost train rumbling through the darkness
Hold on to me darling I've got nowhere else to go
Verse 4
"How do you do?"
She said, "How do you do?"
Verse 5
I took the cannonball down to the ocean
Watched the diesel disappear beneath the tumbling waves
Love is a ghost train howling on the radio
"Remember everything." she said, "when only memory remains."
Verse 6
"How do you do?"
She said, "Hey, how do you do?"
