Steel rails, chasing sunshine 'round the bend
Winding through the trees like a ribbon in the wind
I don't mind not knowing what lies down the track
'Cause I'm looking out ahead to keep my mind from turning back

It's not the first time I've found myself alone and known
If I really had you once then I'd have you when I'm gone
Whistle blows, blowin' lonesome in my mind
Calling me along that never ending metal line

Steel rails, chasing sunshine round the bend
Winding through the trees like a ribbon in the wind
I don't mind not knowing what lies down the track
'Cause I'm looking out ahead to keep my mind from turning back

Sun is shining through the open boxcar door
Lying in my mind with the things I've known before
I've lost count of the hours, days and nights
The rhythm of the rails keeps the motion in my mind

Steel rails, chasing sunshine 'round the bend
Winding through the trees like a ribbon in the wind
I don't mind not knowing what lies down the track
'Cause I'm looking out ahead, to keep my mind from turning back
'Cause I'm looking out ahead, to keep my mind from turning back
