This Train Keeps Rolling Along Lyrics

Artist: Nitty Gritty Dirt Band
Album: Acoustic

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 windo seat
I love to watch the world go by
Made friends with a family
Bound for Sault Ste Marie
They said good bye at Sudbury Junction
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 somke, pistons churn
steel rails, big wheels turn
This train keeps rolling along

Across the endless plrairie land
Mighty buffalo used to stand
The Cree and the Blackfoot lived and died
??? the Rockies, nestled in the trees,
I fell in love with Lake Louise
smiling with her sparkling emerald eyes

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, out of time,
Conductor makes his final round
All the people and places past
They went by just a little too fast
How I wishI could've slowed this engine down.

This train keeps rollin along
From here to the great beyond
black somke, pistons churn
steel rails, big wheels turn
This train keeps rolling along
