"Railroad" as written by and Melanie Safka....
Railroad, where you gonna take me now
Been singin' the low notes - want to get up
But he low notes bring me down
The low notes bring me down

Airplane where we gonna go today
I never want to go where you take me
But, you always get your way
You always get your way

Write it down now
Write a song about my friend
She did away with herself
To a rock and roll band

Da da da da da da da da da da
I got Satan's cat
And I got God's big dog too
I got love from a lot of the world
But I don't get love from you, no
I got a lot from the bottom of the world
But I didn't get a thing from you,
No, I don't get a thing from you.

Write it down, now
Write a song about my friends
Who did away with themselves
To the tune of a rockin' band

And... Da da da da da da da da da
Railroad where you gonna take them now
They been singin' the low notes
Wanted to get up
The low notes brought 'em down
The low notes brought 'em down
Oh, God, the low notes brought 'em down

Write it down now
Write a song about my friends
Who did away with themselves
To a rock and roll band

Da da da da da da da da da
