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

That big loud whistle, as it blew and blew
Said hello to the southland, we're comin' to you and we're movin' on
Oh, hear my song
You had the laugh on me, so I set you free and I'm movin' on

Mister fireman, won't you please listen to me
'Cause I got a pretty mama in Tennessee, so keep movin' me on
Keep rollin' on
Just shovel the coal, let this rattler roll and keep movin' me on

Mister Engineer, take that throttle in hand
The Rattler's the fastest in the southern land so keep movin' me on
Keep rollin' on
You gonna ease my mind, put me there on time and keep rollin' on

I warned you baby, from time to time
But you just wouldn't listen or pay me no mind, now I'm movin' on
I'll soon be gone
You've broken your vow, and it's all over now so I'm movin' on

You've swtched your engine, now I ain't got time
For a triflin' woman on my main line 'cause I'm movin on
I'm rolling on
I warned you twice, now you can settle the price 'cause I'm movin on

But someday baby, when you've had your play
You're gonna want your daddy, but your daddy will say "keep movin' on"
You stayed away too long
I'm through with you, too bad you're blue, keep movin' on
