Lightnin' out of Sante Fe,


The Great Northern out of Cheyenne,

From sea to shining sea.

 

Gotta go to Tulsa,

First train we can ride.

Gotta settle one old score,

One small point of pride.

 

There ain't a place a man can hide, Shannon

Will keep him from the sun

Ain't a bed can give us rest now,

You keep us on the run.
