This road I'm on it's blacktop and gravel
It's a faded blue line this road I travel
It's a well worn path, it's a cold bar ditch
It's a brakeman sleepin' on a dead man's switch

And I'm a rollin' faster than a locomotive
Tougher than the edge of the Rockies
Hotter than a smoking gun
Ragged as the road I'm on

This road I'm on has been cracked by the cold
It's been scorched by the sun and searched by the soul
And it's a working back breakin', it's a pickaxes swingin'
It's steel wheels turnin' on steel rails singin'

And I'm a rollin' faster than a locomotive
Tougher than the edge of the Rockies
Hotter than a smoking gun
Ragged as the road I'm on

This road lies ahead like life on a brush
It's a virgin canvas free from human touch
And it's ours for the taking or the leaving behind
It's a ghost of the past with a future to find

It's got me rollin' faster than a locomotive
Tougher than the edge of the Rockies
Hotter than a smoking gun
Ragged as the road

It's got me rollin' faster than a locomotive
Tougher than the edge of the Rockies
Hotter than a smoking gun
Ragged as the road I'm on
