Riding on a Railroad

This song is by James Taylor and appears on the album Mud Slide Slim and the Blue Horizon (1971).

We are ridin' on a railroad
Singin' some else's song
Forever standin' by that cross road
Take your side and step along

We are sailin' away on a river to the sea
Maybe you and me can meet again
We are ridin' on a railroad
Singin' someone else's song
Sing along

Time to time I tire of the life that I've been leadin'
Town to town, day by day

There's a man up here who claims
To have his hands upon the reins
There are chains upon his hands
And he's riding upon a train.

Oh Lord, we've been riding on a railroad
Singin' some else's song
Forever standin' by the cross road.
Take your side and step along

We are sailin' away on a river to the sea
Maybe you and me can meet again, now
We been ridin' upon a railroad
Singin' someone else's song
[Instrumental and fade].
