I'm free as a man can be, this is the life for me
Go when I want to or I don't, no worries and troubles for me
A newspaper for my bed, no naggin' woman bangin' my head
I'm free as the breeze and I go when I please
Silver rails keep me free, silver rails keep me free.

When I find a place I don't like
When I find the things ain't right
An old freight train will be waiting to set me free
Silver rails keep me free, silver rails keep me free.

--- Instrumental ---

I follow that old sunshine, ain't nothing I've left behind
I'm walking it slow, always ready to go, I don't get far from that line
At night I get my sleep, that's all I ever need
I hear the whistle call and it's goodbye to you all
Silver rails keep me free, silver rails keep me free.

When I find a place I don't like
When I find the things ain't right
An old freight train will be waiting to set me free
Silver rails keep me free, silver rails keep me free...
