Found on Hourglass.

I was on a sleeper train
Bound for anywhere
And I was gazin' out the window
In a long stare
Watchin' the sage brush go by
And a pink and yellow sky
Thinkin' 'bout your eyes
Feelin' good to be alive

I was dreamin' of you
Feelin' lucky
I was dreamin' of you
Feelin' lucky

And I was watchin' the towns drift into view
Listenin' to my thoughts of you
And the rhythm of the wheels
And the shadows on the hills
Leavin' one more life behind
Never knowin' what I'd find
Such a distant great expanse
And the dust-devils, they dance

And I was dreamin' of you
Feelin' lucky
I was dreamin' of you
Feelin' lucky

Abandon everything that went before
Ahead now lies another open door
Abandon everything that went before

I was on a sleeper train
Bound for anywhere
And I was gazin' out the window
In a long stare
Watchin' the sage brush go by
And a pink and yellow sky
Thinkin' 'bout your eyes
Feelin' good to be alive

I was dreamin' of you
Feelin' lucky
I was dreamin' of you
Feelin' lucky
I was dreamin' of you
Feelin' lucky
I was dreamin' of you
Feelin' lucky

The train kept rollin'
