Well the man’s name is Sunshine
And he come up from the town
Said he bring a proposition
For a man when he’s down
Gonna buy me an aeroplane
Gonna teach me how to fly
Gonna take me to America
Gonna make Mama cry

And when I hear that lonesome train whistle blow
Then I know it’s time for me to go
I been round this cold hard town too long
There’s so many roads a man could go
Roads that glisten in the night like diamonds
Oh how I long to be
Living the mystery
Living the mystery

Well the phone keep on ringin’
But the man’s never home
Ain’t nobody at this address..
Will you people move along!’
Well I’m a sure fire addict
For a world up in the stars
Turn a new sod over
C’est la vie, au revoir

And when I hear that lonesome train whistle blow
Then I know it’s time for me to go
I been round this cold hard town too long
There’s so many roads a man could go
Roads that echo in the night, I hear them
Calling to you and me to keep on

Living the mystery,
Living the mystery

Well I’m a sure fire addict
For a world up in the stars
Turn a new sod over
C’est la vie, au revoir
C’est la vie, au revoir
Living the mystery
