Song Description

This is a rocker with a slow bluesy start and a gospel feel. There are influences from all my heroes: Elvis, The Beatles, Jerry Lee and so on - back to my roots!

Story Behind the Song

Yet again the guy's on a train getting away from a broken love affair. He seems to be doing what the lady wishes. Good policy, I'd say!


Slow Intro. Station man said, Where d'you wanna ticket to?
I replied that Heaven would be nice!
Take me to a destination - anywhere will do,
Just to stop me feeling blue.

1. Sittin' here and watchin' as the trees go by,
Sentimental journey and I don't know why.
You decided there's a better way to live,
I decided there's a better way to give.

Refrain 1. I'm on the Train of Freedom, tryin' to find my way.
Way down the line, things will be fine,
The future will be mine.
I'm on the Train of Freedom one more time.
