Crowson: Good Night, Amtrak, Nice Knowing Ya

Apr 19, 2017

What do you know – the president wants to cut Amtrak out of Kansas. So with apologies to Arlo Guthrie:

Riding on the Amtrak Southwest Chief, rumbling across the Sunflower State
For 46 years, Garden City up to KC - And now it’s going to meet its final fate
There’s a train wreck in the White House
By the name of Donald Trump
Wants to derail Kansas, infrastructurally
Taking money away from Amtrak
Giving it all to the military
To bomb his way to popularity

Good night, Amtrak, nice knowing ya
The president doesn’t want you Kansas bound
The train they call the Southwest Chief is leaving
Trump’s sending it to the Happy Hunting Ground

The Southwest Chief runs from LA to Chicago, 50,000 Kansas passengers last year
I guess Kansans just don’t matter in Mar-a-Lago
Soon there’ll be no Amtrak service around here

Good night, Amtrak, nice knowing ya
The president doesn’t want you Kansas bound
The train they call the Southwest Chief is leaving
Trump’s sending it to the Happy Hunting Ground
Sending the Southwest Chief to the Happy Hunting Ground
