Glory Bound


Iím gonna jump on an old freight train and ride across this land
Ainít gonna turn my head and look back at your Promised Land
Iíll ride these rails to the end of time then Iíll ride um again
Huddled down on a flat bed car dreaming in the wind

You took my baby you took her away now sheís in her grave
So donít you talk to me of love and hate I donít know what Iíd say
Donít know what Iíd say

Did you ever know a man who took his stand or just up and ran
It really doesnít matter what I do Iím still a lonely man
Running from the pain of yesterday the only way I win
Riding these trains all across this land with my face into the wind

You took my baby you took her away now sheís in her grave
So donít you talk to me about love and hate I donít know what Iíd say
Donít know what Iíd say

Just wanna ride on down the line take me away from here
Never coming back along this track never in a hundred years
The sun comes up and it goes down never makes a bit of sound
The clickety-clack of the rail road track and Iím glory bound

You took my baby you took her away now sheís in her grave
So donít you talk to me about love and hate I donít know what Iíd say
Donít know what Iíd say

Iím gonna jump on an old freight train and ride across this land
Ainít gonna turn my head and look back at your Promised Land
Iíll ride these rails to the end of time then Iíll ride um again
Huddled down on a flat bed car dreaming in the wind

You took my baby you took her away now sheís in her grave
So donít you talk to me about love and hate I donít know what Iíd say
Donít know what Iíd say
