We are riding on a railroad, singing some else's song
Forever standing by the cross road. take a side and step along.
We are sailing away on a river to the sea. maybe you an me can meet again.
We are riding on a railroad, singing someone else's song sing along.

Time to time I tire of the life that I've been leading
Town to town, day by day
There's a man up here who claims to have his hands upon the reins.
There are chains upon his hands and he's riding upon a train.

We are riding on a railroad, singing some else's song
Forever standing by the cross road. take a side and step along.
We are sailing away on a river to the sea. maybe you an me can meet again.
We are riding on a railroad, singing someone else's song.
[instrumental and fade].
