Key: e

From the (e)great salt lakes of utah to calif(a)ornias golden (e)shore
Colorado and nevada through the (f#)deserts burnin (b7)door
While she's (e)circlin through the canyons, can't you (a)see that mountain (e)stream
Its the california zephyr, the (b7)union pacific (e)queen

See her rockin see her rollin as she rambles on her way
She left la this mornin burnin up the right of way
In the distance hear her moanin hear her lonesome whistle scream
Its the california zephyr, the union pacific queen

She leaves the city of the angels headin for ole santa fe
Shes a makin nauts she's makin time just watch her swing and sway
And from way out in the darkness, see that headlight gleam
Its the california zephyr, the union pacific queen

From the great salt lakes of utah to californias golden shore
Colorado and nevada through the deserts burnin door
While she's circlin through the canyons, can't you see that mountain stream
Its the california zephyr, the union pacific queen
