(Music and Lyrics by Elizabeth Lee & Bobby Pugh)

Train keeps barreling ahead

They say I’d be a dead man to stay

I caught the line off the Old Caroline and I’d

Do it all again

Smoke and ash trail out the back

Leave the cinders of my old life behind

I lean back – pull down my hat

Fall asleep on the uneven track

And it keeps, rollin’, rollin’, rollin’

Open my eyes on the passenger line

I don’t where I’m headed now

Open my mind to the secrets I hide

I don’t know if I can find a way out

Boy I wish you could see me now

And you’d know that I did all that I could

And if I end up in no man’s land

At least you’ll know that I end up good

and far from here

Train keeps barreling ahead

I know you hate it that I left you behind

But when you do what I did

Babe, there ain’t no place to hide

Not sure where I’m headed

Or even where I’ve been

No gun, no misfire

No suspect no sin

And it keeps, rollin’, rollin’, rollin’

Open my eyes on the passenger line

I don’t where I’m headed now

Open my mind to the secrets I hide

I don’t know if I can find a way out

Boy I wish you could see me now

And you’d know that I did all that I could

And if I end up in no man’s land

At least you’ll know that I end up good

and far from here

Don’t go chasing me

It doesn’t do to live in nightmares

Don’t go chasing me

It doesn’t do to dwell in dreams

Don’t go chasing me

It doesn’t do to live in nightmares

Don’t go chasing me

It doesn’t do to live in dreams

Open my eyes on the passenger line

And I know where I’m headed now

Open my mind to the secrets I hide

Now I know that there’s no way out

Boy I wish you could see me now

And you’d know that I did all that I could

And when I end up in no man’s land

At least you’ll know that I end up good

And far from here

Far from here

Far from here

Far from here
