If I had to choose
Which I love the most
Of all the trains that run

I would choose the train
Headed south to you
In that setting sun

And if I had to ride
Just one set of tracks
Until they lay me down

I would ride the ones
Which take my body back
To the best I’ve ever found

The one who picked me up
The one who sat me down
Who taught me how it’s done

Yes I’d ride the rails
Which bring me back around
Back into the arms of my favorite one

If I had a ticket
One way out of town
When the day had disappeared

I would leave tonight
Runnin’ with the sound
Coal and iron racin’ outta’ here
