Red streamliner rolling Rollin' down the track the things you see With your wheels in motion through desert, mountain, ocean I hear you every night, is it a dream?
Red streamliner rolling down, coming down on me Red streamliner rolling, rolling long so free Your past keeps coming back on me To far and near, away from here
Where people move a mile a minute This hurricane living with you and me in it Long into the night, that whistle offers light
Red streamliner rolling I wish you'd tell me 'bout the things you see I'm looking, looking down the tracks you ride Knowing that they're your only guide I see them every night, is it a dream? And when the sidewalks roll up at night Just as stations pass by
Once the leader of the wild, wild west Hurricane living been a lifelong song Now you're cast of steel and cast aside Broken dreams maybe, but you haven't died
