I was born in the middle of the night
And my mama raised a little boy
On the banks of the Old Foxy(?) river
In a little town in Illinois
I was taught to believe in the Lord
Yeah, even when the times got rough
And though I do the best I can do
Sometimes it ain't good enough

And it's a long long road to somewhere
And it's a long long time 'til we get there

My Grandfather was a railroad man
And he worked with a shovel in his hand
He was one of the men who were sweating
His way across the motherland
And when he talked about the Great Depression
He said he hoped I'd never see the date
But it seems that as good as I'm doin'
It won't be too far away

[Chorus] X2

[Harmonica Solo]

[Chorus] X2

I often wondered where the big trains went
As they were quickly fading out 'o sight
They were carrying the dreams of the people
Out into the night
Yes, I wondered where the big trains went
And so I thought that I would ride along
Carrying my thoughts out into the night
And a singing my song
