Sidetracked conveniently five steps from the mainline,
Fresh off of a grain porch drinking swill.
Down from picking up in Maine,
Counting change.

"Oh how I, I would do anything
For that old junktrain to turn manifest.
And highball, yeah I'd sing that railroad song
By the time the sun is setting in the west"

No time or purpose as embers smolder,
Holed up in pines of green.
Pablo writes "D.O.S."
Where mouths don't share what their eyes have seen.

"See those days are gone and I can't stand one more,
I've fought this war counting miles alone.
I've seen it all, every goddamn state,
Out here son it's as rough as I have known."

All I have known
With sky above is home,
And ground beneath is bed,
So ride fast, live slow without regret.

"I've got no time for regret,
Those thoughts solve nothing in the end.
Got blistered hands, lived full through rejection
Long endured 'cause I came up poor.”

"Hell no I, I wouldn't change a thing,
Those old junktrains all turn manifest.
And highball, yeah I'll sing that railroad song
By the time the sun is setting in the west."
