"California Zephyr" as written by Oliver Robert Main, Matthew Peter George Bowman, David James Best, James David Naylor and Ryan Andrew Wilson....
Up the Hudson Valley across New York state
To Chicago then the plains
All so easy and dreamlike
Crashing the salt flat day break

I hear "I'll take you home again Kathleen"
Sad in fogwinds out there that blow
Across the rooftops of eerie old hang over
San Francisco

Now I'm transcontinental
3000 Miles from my home
I'm on the California Zephyr
Watching America roll by
2x

I've hit the end of the trail, can't even drag my body
I've been driven mad for three years
Too much fame keeps a body busy
And a mind full of white port tears

Terrified by that sad song across rooftops
Mingled with the lachrymose cries
Of the Salvation army meeting on the corner
Saying Satan is the cause of it all

Now I'm transcontinental
3000 Miles from my home
I'm on the California Zephyr
Watching America roll by
