Track Title: Ghost Train Album Title: August and Everything After Prime Artist: Counting Crows Producer: T-Bone Burnett (J. Henry Burnett) Written by: Adam Duritz Lyrics: 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 "How do you do?" She said, "Hey, how do you do?" 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 "How do you do?" She said, "How do you do?" 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." "How do you do?" She said, "Hey, how do you do?"
