Princess of the Night
Saxon Lyrics


She used to be an ironhorse
Twenty years ago
Used to bring the mail to me
Through the ice and snow
I've sat alone and watched her
Steaming through the night
Ninety tons of thunder
Lighting up the sky

She was a princess of the night
I saw the writing on the wall
She was a princess of the night
I take a ride across the sky

Speeding, sparks like lightning
Engine working hard
Furnace on the foot plate
Shining in the night
Iron striking metal
The sound of racing steel
It's all I ever want to hear
It's music to my ears

She was a princess of the night
I saw the writing on the wall
She was a princess of the night
I take a ride across the sky

She was a princess of the night
I saw the writing on the wall
She was a princess of the night
I take a ride across the sky

Ninety tons of thunder
Lighting up the sky
Steaming red hot pistons
See the wheels flash by
Hear the whistle blowing
Streaking down the track
If I ever had my way
I'd bring the princess back one day

She was a princess of the night
I saw the writing on the wall
She was a princess of the night
I take a ride across the sky
(sky, sky, sky)

Their song 'Dallas 1PM' is about the day/time JFK was assassinated.

This song is quite often one of their encore songs if not 99% of the time the last song of the night.

Jonny James

The song is about a train that delivered the post. It aint just country songs that talk about trains. This song remains all time metal fave

I love Maiden, but Saxon deserved a much bigger success than they got back in the day. Not too many people know about this excellent NWOBHM band.
