The lyrics of Troy's train song are much like his situation with Rose and Raynell.

Trains and the black culture behind them are staple for the African American experience that shows up in spiritual songs and stories. Trains symbolize a change in life. They represent a transitional experience in life that is also associated with a spiritual experience.
