Here she is, rolling through again
just like every day about this time
whistling at me like a familiar friend
she just keeps rolling on down the lane

There's a man who drives her,
a man without a face
she'll keep rolling long after he's gone
she never stops to read the name of this place
she just keeps rolling
no time for slowing
just keeps rolling on

well someday, oh so far away
she'll show everything that she's seen
I'll hop upon her and I'll fly away
make my escape on that Iron Rail Queen

Here she is rolling through again
just like every day about this time
I can hear her calling my name inside the wind
She just keeps rolling, on down the line
