Second Class, Wait Here (1996 Digital Remaster) - Slim Dusty

Written by:Slim Dusty/Henry Lawson

At suburban railway stations you may see them as you pass

There are signboards on the platform saying 'wait here second class'

And to me the whirr and thunder and the cluck of running gear

Seems to be forever saying saying 'second class wait here'

Yes the second class were waiting in the days of serf and prince

And the second class are waiting they've been waiting ever since

There are gardens in the background and the line is dark and drear

Yet they wait beneath a signboard sneering 'second class wait here'

I have waited oft in winter in the morning dark and damp

When the asphalt platform glistened underneath the lonely lamp

And the wind among the poplars and the wires that thread the air

Seemed to be for ever snarling snarling 'second class wait here'

Out beyond a further suburb 'neath a chimney stack alone

Lays the works of grinder brothers with a platform of their own

As I waited there and suffered waited there for many a day

Slaved beneath a phantom signboard telling all my hopes to stay

Ah a man must feel revengeful for a boyhood such as mine

God I hate the very houses near the workshop by the line

And the smell of railway stations and the roar of running gear

And the scornful seeming signboards saying 'second class wait here'

There's a train with death the driver and it's ever going past

There will be no class compartments when it all ahout at last

To that long white jasper platform with an eden in the rear

And there won't be any signboards saying 'second class wait here'

Oh no there won't be any signboards saying 'second class wait here'
