"Can't Stop The Train"

I am on my way on a train
steaming along in the rain
from the life I lived before.
I have a tear in my eye
sometimes it's easy to cry
though I'm not a child anymore.

Can't stop the train from a rollin
or make the wheels turn slow
you know I had to go.
Can't stop the train from a rollin
and neither snow or rain
can get me back again.

I am on the run from my home
somehow I'll make it alone
if I'm strong enough today.
You know I had to go along, oh
pray for me while I am all gone
think of me sometime anyway.

Can't stop the train from a rollin
or make the wheels turn slow
you know I had to go.
Can't stop the train from a rollin
and neither snow or rain
can get me back again.
