You had a busy day today
You got a long night ahead
There’s too much on my plate
Too many dreams patiently wait
As you crawl through your life
Watchin’ the time roll by
A suitcase full of empty dreams
Sits on a train that never leaves

And you cry how far to San Francisco
When do we walk in Memphis
When do we ride the trains
All the way across the state of Texas

Where d’you think you wanna be?
A ticket for anywhere, one way please
How long are you prepared to wait
Before you jump that rolling freight
And it takes you in your dreams
And your heart that's bursting at the seams
That old train whistle cries for you
You’re too late, once again it’s passed on through

And you cry how far to San Francisco
When do we walk in Memphis
When do we ride the trains
All the way across the state of Texas

You spend your life
In an old leather office chair
That’s been passed down
From the last guy
Who never made it anywhere

What’ll you do, when you found that place
Where the sun shine’s heavy and the rain falls less
Will you miss the life that was
Dead-end streets and dead-end jobs
Or do you see another dream
That only dreamers see
You wait for another rolling freight
That never comes
And it just lets you know who you are

And then you still cry how far to San Francisco
When do we walk in Memphis
When do we ride the trains
All the way across the state of Texas

How far to San Francisco
When do we walk in Memphis
When do we ride the train
All the way across the state of Texas
