Over high plains, through the snow
I'm raising steam.
Spill a little where the new towns grow.
Heading out into that wide world wide.
And I don't care which way I ride.

All in pieces come apart
That engine up front must
Riding shotgun on the sunset, stare it in the eye,
Funny how the whole world, historically,
We may not be coming back.
Let me be your engineer
Raising steam.
When you're up and rolling on your driving wheels?
Heading out into that wide world wide.
And I don't care which way I ride.
Raising steam.
I'm raising steam.
Raising steam.
