Sunshine Railway Disaster
THE SUNSHINE RAILWAY DISASTER
Tune: If Those Lips Could Only Speak
Recorded in 1974 by Warren Fahey from Mrs Peg Collins, Perth.
If those trains had only run
The doctors and nurses arrived there
| He was driving a Bendigo engine,
The train was running all right.
It was going along as usual,
Till Sunshine came in sight.
He put on his brakes and he whistled,
For the signal was against the train;
He applied his brakes for emergency,
But alas! It was all in vain.
