Mary run around, sailin up and down,
Looking for a shot in some direction.
Got it from the top, its nothing you can stop,
Lord, you know they made a fire connection.

They love each other, lord you can see that its true,
Lord you can see that its true, lord you can see that its true.

He could pass his time, around some other line
But you know he choose this place beside her.
Dont get in their way, theres nothing you can say,
Nothing that you need to add or do.

They love each other, lord you can see that its true,
Lord you can see that its true, lord you can see that its true.

Its nothing, they explain, its like a diesel train
You better not be there when it rolls, over,
And when that train rolls in, you wonder where its been,
You gotta try and see a little further.

[ additional lyrics from the 1973 version ]

Though youll make a noise, just cant hear your voice.
All the dizzy ride on your cold shoulder.

Wont you believe what I say is true?
Everything I did I heard it first from you.

Everything I tell you, I heard it first from you.
Heard your news report, you know youre falling short.
Pretty soon, well trust you for the weather.
When that ship comes in, you wont know where its been.
You got to try to see a little further.
