He rode all the way to Texas on an old freight train
He didn't miss the girl he left behind
He rode all the way to Texas, didn't shed a tear
He's letting you know that he's the moving kind

A light shines from my window
I just can't sleep no more
Oh Lord, it hurts so much to be alone
But the real men never do admit
That it's them that might be wrong
At least that's what he told me in his song

He rode all the way to Texas on an old freight train
He didn't miss the girl he left behind
He rode all the way to Texas, he didn't shed a tear
He's letting you know that he's the moving kind

The freedom that he sings about
Well, I guess I'll never know
I just can't shake the guilt or kill the pain
But it helps to ride when the lights turn low
I'll get on board the radio
And take a ride out to Texas on his train

He rode all the way to Texas on an old freight train
He didn't miss the girl he left behind
He rode all the way to Texas, he didn't shed a tear
He's letting you know that he's the moving kind
Yes, he's letting you know that he's the moving kind
