Down around the corner
A half a mile from here
You see them old trains runnin'
And you watch them disappear

Without love
Where would you be now
Without love

You know I saw Miss Lucy
Down along the tracks
She lost her home and her family
And she won't be comin' back

Without love
Where would you be right now
Without love

Well the Illinois Central
And the Southern Central Freight
Gotta keep on pushin' Mama
'Cause you know they're runnin' late

Without love
Where would you be now
Now, now, now
Without love

Well the Illinois Central
And the Southern Central Freight
Gotta keep on pushin' Mama
You know they're runnin' late

Without love
Where would you be now
Without love

Where pistons keep on churnin'
And the wheels go 'round and 'round
And the steel rails are cold and hard
For the miles that they go down

Without love
Where would you be right now
Without love
Where would you be now

Got to get up baby, things are moving now
Well they are moving now
Baby, baby, baby
Baby well they are moving now
See the big train run
When the train is moving on
You got to keep on moving
Keep on moving, keep on moving
Well keep on moving

JOHNSTON, TOM
