Highway of Loneliness is what I ride
Waters of Darkness, running deep inside
Station of Solitude is where I wait
Golden Chariot, don't be late

Mountain of Sorry, River of Pain
Path of Lies, I'm on that Road again
If I bathe the River of Salvation
If I wash in the Sanctifying Rain
Will the Winds of Change
Speak my name
And roll me off this Runaway Train

City of Sin, Wailing Wall
Dungeon of Sorry, you know I've seen them all
Desert of Blood, Valley of Tears
Runaway of Train...Ship of Fears


The road to heaven very long
every track I take is always wrong
River Jordan so very wide
Promise Land always on the other side


Bottle of Whiskey calls my name
Mr Jameson, it's you and me again
Sleeping pills, one last song
Train to Nowhere...don't be long
