they built this railroad across three states for you and me i hear transcontinental my dear it’s only miles and i could be there if i could live on bread and water i swear i’d be there scheduled eyes in an audience placing you and me apart besides miles of road but maybe the drive can give more time to think about what is behind that visor facing west in this evening glare it’s only miles and i could be there if i could live on bread and water i swear i’d be there.
