about

SO MUCH FUN, after so much frustration. This was the last track of the day, and, well . . . We were punch drunk. Enjoy the ride!

lyrics

Big thing rolls up, I listen to the engine
Drowns out the fear and the hesitation
Am I on the right track? Is this train the one
To take me all the way to you?

CHORUS
Lord I'm five, lord I'm four
Lord I'm three, lord I'm two
Lord I'm one hundred miles
Away from you

Ticket clutched tight in my fingers, suitcase and guitar
That's everything I'm taking on this journey
Walked away from everything else I had
Just to wake up next to you
CHORUS

I sit back and watch the scenery with one eye half closed
One eye half open, to the world, to the path
Ears tuned to the song of the track, to the rhythm of the wheels
As they carry me to you

CHORUS
Lord I'm one, lord I'm two
Lord I'm three, lord I'm four
Lord I'm five hundred miles
From what's gone before

Lord I'm five, lord I'm four
Lord I'm three, lord I'm two
Lord I'm one hundred miles
I'm home with you
