Jimmie Van Zant – Runaway Train Lyrics

The day that I was born, someone cried 'all aboard'
My destination was a mystery

Started nice and slow, I heard that whistle blow
At every crossing I've been pickin' up speed
Ddicted to the rhythm, ignoring every sign
The faster we go the more we leave behind

Still we ride and we ride on this runaway train
Watchin' life rushin' by through a dusty window pane
The wind and the wheels keep screamin' to my brain
Sayin' jump the track, get me outta here, Jack
There's gotta be a way to stop this runaway train

I got a nut to crack, about to break my back
Nobody else is gonna shoulder this load
Now I can feel the sweat, how much hotter can it get
Before you realize you're out of control

It ain't about the money, it's all about the race
A little piece of heaven and the dreams we gotta chase

Still we ride and we ride on this runaway train

Watchin' life rushin' by through a dusty window pane
The wind and the wheels keep screamin' to my brain
Sayin' jump the track, get me outta here, Jack
There's gotta be a way to stop this runaway train
Someday I'll slow down when there's no where left to go
I'll turn this train around and let it take me on home

Yeah, we ride and we ride on this runaway train
Watchin' life rushin' by through a dusty window pane
The wind and the wheels keep callin' out my name
Screamin' to my brain

Gotta ride gotta ride this runaway train
Devil right behind ya, drivin' you insane
The wind and the wheels keep screamin' to my brain
Sayin' jump the track, get me outta here, Jack
There's gotta be a way to stop this runaway train

Get me off this runaway train, get me off the runaway train
