  1. Runaway Train

From the recording Through the Fire

Lyrics

A sleepy Texas town on a hot Friday in August
I was switching freight cars we had pulled all the way from Dallas
When the brakeman yelled, it was all I could do to scream
A million tons of steel and iron on top of me

In half a second twenty years
Disappeared right before my eyes
Like the lights of a midnight train
Going dim behind a lonely sky
Oooooh Oooh
Aaaah aaah
Runaway train, runaway. Don’t stop anymore
Runaway train, runaway. I don’t care anymore
Runaway train, runaway. Don’t stop anymore
Runaway train, runaway. I don’t care anymore

A busy Bama city on a cold November Monday
She was switching rail cars we had rode all the way since Sunday
When the brakeman yelled it was all I could to do to scream
A million tons of steel and iron took her from me
