"Locomotive" as written by W. Axl Rose, Saul Hudson, Duff Rose Mckagan, Izzy Stradlin, Darren A. Reed and Matt Sorum....
Locomotive won't stop
Locomotive ain't never gonna quit
Locomotive made of iron and steel
Locomotive I am you

From the East Bay garage
To the radio dial
We've been noted
For our combative style
You never give up
With no chance to win
We know who you are
And we've been where you've been

Locomotive won't stop
Locomotive ain't never gonna quit
Locomotive made of iron and steel
Locomotive I am you

The wall street bailout
Is crooked and stacked
The burdens gonna end up
On the working man's back
I know times are changing
And there's a new sound
I'm glad you all made it
It's good to have you around

Locomotive won't stop
Locomotive ain't never gonna quit
Locomotive made of iron and steel
Locomotive I am you

I am you

    My InterpretationCorrect lyrics straight from the booklet:


    Locomotive won't stop
    Locomotive ain't ever gonna quit
    Locomotive made of iron and steel
    Locomotive I am you

    From the East Bay garage to the radio dial
    We've been noted for our combative style
    You never give up with no chance to win
    We know who you are and we've been where you've been

    The wall street bailout is crooked and stacked
    The burdens gonna end up on the workin' man's back
    I know times are changing and there's a new sound
    I'm glad you all made it, it's good to have you around

    General CommentWow, still going strong. Might as well add this one to the list of all-time Rancid greats. I am truly grateful that these guys still believe in rock and roll.

    Anyone else think that Tim actually does hiccup just once while singing this track?
