All aboard in Montreal
I heard the conductor call
That old engine heaved a sigh
Suitcases and shuffling feet
I found my way to a window seat
I love to watch the world go by

Made friends with a family
Bound for Sault St. Marie
They said bye at Sudbury Junction"
I guess, I hated to see 'em go
Thought about 'em as it started to snow
Time stops for nothing or no one

This train keeps rollin' along
From here to the great beyond
Black smoke, pistons churn
Steel rails and big wheels turn
This train keeps rolling along

Across the endless prairie land
Mighty buffalo used to stand
Cree and the Blackfoot lived and died
Are the Rockies nestled in the trees
I fell in love with Lake Louise
Smiling with her sparkling emerald eyes

This train keeps rollin' along
From here to the great beyond
Black smokeand pistons churn
Steel rails and big wheels turn
This train keeps rolling along

Soon we'll reach the sea and there I'll stand
With nothing but the blue between me and Japan

Now I'm at the end of the line
Out of track and out of time
Conductor makes his final round
But all the people and places past
They went by just a little too fast
How I wish, I could've slowed this engine down

This train keeps rollin' along
From here to the great beyond
Black smoke and pistons churn
Steel rails and big wheels turn
This train keeps rolling along

This train keeps rolling along
This train keeps rolling along
It keeps on rolling, rolling along
It keeps on rolling
