Jerry Jeff Walker – Tracks Run Through The City lyrics

Michael Martin Murphey

From my window shadows of the buildings in the night
Run like a river, broken only by city lights
Running like a thousand whispered lines
Broken only by the ancient railroad ties

Chorus:
Out where the tracks run through the city
Tracks run through the city
I want to be on that train
That'll take me to a place to hide
Where tracks run through the city
Tracks run through the city
Tracks run through the city
And I'm longin' to ride, please let me ride

You know I want to ride that train
Everybody wants to find a brand new life somewhere
I know it's waiting at the end of the track somewhere out there
The end of the rainbow is not meant for me
Just got to find some new simplicity

Chorus

You know I want to ride that train
Let me ride
