Lyrics
Light the lamp and fire mellow
Cabin essence timely hello
Welcomes the time for a change

Lost and found, you still remain there
You'll find a meadow filled with grain there
I'll give you a home on the range

Who ran the iron horse?
Who ran the iron horse?
Who ran the iron horse?
Who ran the iron horse?

Who ran the iron horse?
Who ran the iron horse?
Who ran the iron horse?
Who ran the iron horse?

Who ran the iron horse?
Who ran the iron horse?

I want to watch you windblown facing
Waves of wheat for your embracing
Folks sing a song of the grange

Nestle in a kiss below there
The constellations ebb and flow there
And witness our home on the range

Who ran the iron horse?
Who ran the iron horse?
Who ran the iron horse?
Who ran the iron horse?

Who ran the iron horse?
Who ran the iron horse?
Who ran the iron horse?
Who ran the iron horse?

Who ran the iron horse?
Who ran the iron horse?

Have you seen the grand coolie workin' on the railroad?
Workin' on the railroad? Workin' on the railroad?

Over and over
The crow cries, uncover the cornfield
Over and over
The thresher and hover the wheat field

Over and over
The crow cries, uncover the cornfield
Over and over
The thresher and hover the wheat field

Over and over
The crow cries, uncover the cornfield
