You see, love may be gone but never forgotten
His memory won't leave you alone
And the, train may be long gone from the station
But you, still hear the whistle moan
Still hear the whistle moan

Love may be gone but never forgotten
His memory won't leave you alone
And the, train may be long gone from the station
But you, still hear the whistle moan, oh
Still hear the whistle moan
