Your mother don't cry
Your daddy don't go
The spies don't let the government know
The water don't rise
Living on the railroad
Your brother don't lie
Your lover don't cheat
The ground wont fall
From under your feet and the wind don't blow
Livin on the railroad

Living on the railroad, living on the railroad

Your colour don't fade
Your sorrow don't show
The shadow don't follow wherever you go
The butter don't melt livin' on the railroad
Your cards don't lose
Your brakes don't fail
The rain comes down to cover your trail
But the wind don't blow living on the railroad

Living on the railroad, living on the railroad
Living on the railroad, living on the railroad

Thunder, lightening,
Stealing, fighting
Crashing, cryin, breakin', dyin',
Failing, fallin', lyin'
Greed
These are the things I never see

Living on the railroad, living on the railroad
Living on the railroad, living on the railroad.....
