Перевод песни Merle Haggard – The Silver Ghost

On a cold and rainy night I was sitting in the light
Oh my switchman shack of mine post on the mountain
The storm was pretty bad and the telephone was dead
But it was just eleven hours till the dawn
Then much to my surprise the telegraph jumped in the light
As I read the code I thought could this be true
The train was on its way headed up to mountain grade
But she didn't have no engineer or crew
At the other switch they tried to put her on the mountain side
But she kept on coming up the mountain grade
But I quickly dowsed the light to try to see into the night
Maybe I could spot her headlight in the rain
She was pounding down below I could hear her whistle blow
And I thought Lord that's a high and mournful sound
Then the telegraph again there's a caving in the mine
And a hundred men have buried beneath the ground
Lord, she's coming now I see her around the bend and straight at me And her baller is glowing red as coal in hell
The headlight switching wide searching all the mountain side
But the only sound she's making it's a wail
Then I recognized the train by the number and the name
It's the miners' Silver Ghost 0−40−1
Then she vanished up the track by the lonely switchman shack
Like a mother who was looking for her son
Now I heard the story how an engine went to glory
Over fifty years ago in the same line
It was steaming for the caving there were men needed saving
But it missed the curve in trestle near the mine
And every now and then you'll hear a whistle on the wind
It's from mountain slides where many men're lost
It's a high and lonely wail and searching up and down the mountain
It's the train they call the Miners Silver Ghost
The train they call the Miners Silver Ghost
