Ladies and gentlemen
Boy and girls
Cowboys and indians
Please welcome Ms. Emmylou Harris and The Hot Band

Well that big eight-wheeler, movin' down the track
Means your true-lovin' daddy ain't comin' back
She's movin' on, I'll soon be gone
You were flyin' too high, for my little old sky
I'm movin' on

And that big loud whistle, as it blew and blew
Said hello to the southland, we're comin' to you
I'm movin' on, oh, keep movin' along
You had the laugh on me, so I set you free
I'm movin' on, yeah

Mister fireman, won't you please listen to me
'Cause I got a sweet dada down in Tennessee
Keep movin' me on, keep rollin' along
We can shovel the coal, let this rattler roll
I'm movin' on

Yeah, mister engineer, take that throttle in hand
This rattler's the fastest in the southern land
Keep movin' me on, keep rollin' along
You can ease my mind and put me there on time
I'm movin' on

I've told you baby, from time to time
But you just wouldn't listen or pay me no mind
Now I'm movin' on, keep rollin' along
You've broken your vow and it's all over now
I'm movin' on

Yeah, you've swtched your engine, now I ain't got time
For a triflin' man on my main line
I'm movin on, keep rollin' along
Yeah, I warned you twice, now you can settle the price
I'm movin on
