Steel Rails

   Steel rails chasin’ sunshine ’round the bend
   Winding through the trees like a ribbon in the wind
   I don’t mind not knowin’ what lies down the track
    ‘Cause I’m lookin’ out ahead to keep my mind from turnin’ back

It’s not the first time I found myself alone at dawn
If I really had you once then I have you when I’m gone
Whistle blowin’ blowin’ lonesome in my mind
Calling me along the never ending meadow vine

Sun is shining through the open boxcar door
Lyin’ in my mind with the things I’ve known before
I’ve lost count of the hours days and nights
The rhythm of the rails keep the motion in my mind
