Engine, engine number 9
Can you get me back on time?
Move on, move on down the track
Keep that steam comin' out the stack
Keep on movin'
Keep on movin', keep on movin'

Engine, engine number 9
Keep on movin' down the line
Seems like I've been gone for days
I can't wait to see my baby's face
Been here, been so long since I held her
Been so long since I held her

Been so long since I held her
Been so long since I kissed her

Engine, engine number 9
Move on, move on down the line
Seems like I've been gone for days
I can't wait to see my baby's face
Move on, move on, move on
Got to get on, I got to get there

Oh, this soundin' alright?
I think I'm gonna hold it a little bit longer
I'm gonna let the boys do this a little bit

Keep on movin'
Keep on movin', keep on movin'
Move on, move on
Get, get, get, get it
Got to, got to, got to
Got to, got to get it

Move on, Lord have mercy
Feel alright then
Keep on movin', keep on movin'
Got to keep movin', gotta get
Gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta
Gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta keep movin'

It's alright
Play your guitar, son

Get it
Get it
Get it

Feel alright
Get me to my baby's place
Got to hold her in my arms

Move on

Got to keep movin'
Got to keep movin'
Got to keep movin'
Down the, down the
Down the, down the line
Got to keep movin', got to move
