I’ve had an awful lot of requests recently, asking, “What happened to all those old songs?”
So just for you tonight, we’re winding the clock up, and play them for you

I’ve always wanted to cross Asia
I’ve always wanted to cross the sea
I’ve always wanted to go to China

There is a train at Version City waiting for the rhythm mail
If you can jump then jump right now
She can pull you through to better days
Is that the train that the speak off?
The one I heard in my younger days?
All great bluesmen have rode her
I'm jumping up, I’m gonna ride that train
There's a lonely soul out on the crossroads
He's waiting there in the pouring rain
He's looking for that great ride, yeah
That'll take him to, oh, what's her name?
So I rode that train from Version City for ninety-nine and one half days
I never heard such rhythm sound
It was in my soul which was on the train
We went straight through Syndrum Junction
Up and over the Acapella Pass
Then Gibson Town and Fenderville
All stations to the Mesa Boogie Ranch
We saw that soul out on the cross roads, waiting there in the pouring rain
We called, “Hey engine, slow your rhythms
See he wants to ride the version train
We rode that train from Version City for ninety-nine and one half years
I never seen such funky country while riding with the engineer
I could not fill no application before I rode this rhythm train
I could not work at my station before I rode the version train
(Supporter)

There is a train

There is a train at Version City, waiting for the rhythm mail
If you can jump, then jump right now
She can pull you through to better days
She can pull you through to better days
She can pull you through to better days
She can pull you through to better days

Are you a “Have”, or a “Have not?
Because if you’re a “Have not”, you’ve probably had it
Where as, if you’re a “Have”, you’ve probably got it, and you are going to give it away in sometime in the future
