The Ultimate Bearhug – Boxcar Blues lyrics

Still as the crowd rushes by us
My eyes wouldn’t move if I asked them to
I get lost without you
Just can’t shake those boxcar blues
On the move, me and you, we’re just passing through

Resting my cheek ‘gainst the window
Such a nice lullaby is the rumble below
It’s your song, it’s so sweet
It could rock me right to sleep
If I’m still in my seat I can feel your heart beat

Maybe I’m na've, but it’s everything to me
Oh that I could fall in love with a train
My heart belongs to an engine’s song
It carries, oh it carries me away

(Instrumental/hummed verse)

A thousand miles of track and I’m happy where I’m at
Fell in love and now I’ll never be the same
My heart belongs to a travelin’ song
It carries, yes it carries me away
