When I was a little kid
My father told me to see the world for him
So I took my things
And painted pink sunsets over the vast oceans
Send your dad a note you made it kid you're on the road

Mother, teach me about the country
Can you tell the lie from the lives that you've seen
Mother, can you tell me
Where this road is gonna lead
Just let yourself go and sell your soul to the road

Don't you know I was resting under the tracks
Even then I knew I would always be back
And I know that this steel train
Is gonna ride on 'till the end

Blue skies and desert rain
I passed my life by course of steel train
And i ride to the end of the rail
I tell my father of all my tales
I say everything I saw I was thinking of you
And the reason I am here is all because of you

Don't you know I was resting under the tracks
Even then I knew I would always be back
I know that my steel train is gonna ride until the end

I know there's room on this steel train
And we're gonna ride it 'till the end
