"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 daybreak
I hear "I'll Take You Home again Kathleen" sad fog winds out there to blow
Across the rooftops of eerie old hangover San Francisco

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

I've hit the end of my trail can't even drag my own body
I've been driven mad for three years
Too much fame keeps a body busy and the mind full of 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
Now I'm transcontinental 3000 miles from my home
I'm on the California Zephyr watching America roll by
