The Day Is Loud

from by Hector MacInnes



The railroad track is miles away
And the day is loud with voices speaking
And there's not a train goes by all day
But I hear its whistle shrieking

All night there's not a train goes by
Though the night is still for sleep and dreaming
But I see it's cinders red on the sky
And I here its engine steaming

My heart is warm with the friends I make
And better friends I'll not be knowing
Yet there's not a train I wouldn't take
No matter where its going


from The Day Is Loud, released November 1, 2015
Music written and recorded by Hector MacInnes at Stiùidio Ostaig, and on location on the Isle of Skye, with lyrics adapted from "Travel" by Edna St Vincent Millay.
