​Nobody Cares About the Railroads Anymore

This song is by Harry Nilsson and appears on the album Harry (1969).

This song has been covered by The Wiyos under the title "Nobody Cares About the Railroads Anymore".
When we got married back in 1944
We'd board that Silverliner below Baltimore
Trip to Virginia on a sunny honeymoon
Nobody cares about the railroads anymore

We'd tip the porter for a place of our own
Then send a postcard to your mom and dad back back home
Mmm, it did something to you when you'd hear that "All aboard"
Nobody cares about the railroads anymore

Woo-ee, woo-ooh-ooh-ee, woo-ee
Woo-ee, woo-ooh-ooh-ee, woo-ee

We had a daughter and you oughtta see her now
She has a boyfriend who looks just like my gal Sal
And when they're married they won't need us anymore
They'll board an aeroplane and fly away from Baltimore

Woo-ee, woo-ooh-ooh-ee, woo-ee
Woo-ee, woo-ooh-ooh-ee, woo-ee

When we got married back in 1944
We'd board that Silverliner below Baltimore
Trip to Virginia on a sunny honeymoon
Nobody cares about the railroads anymore

La la la la-la la-la-la la la bye-bye
La la la la-la la-la-la la la don't cry
Mmm, it did something to you when you'd hear that "All aboard"
Nobody cares about the railroads anymore
