1. RAILROAD MAN

Well, yeah, yeah, yeah, One of these mornings, it won't be long
Captain's gonna call and I'll be gone
I'll be nine hundred miles away from home
You can count the days I'm gone
You can tell the train I'm on
You can hear the whistle blow as she rolls by
She rolls by, she rolls by
Hear the whistle blow as she rolls by
My olden shoes are worn
My olden clothes are torn
And I hate to go home now this-a-way
This-a-way, this-a-way
Hate to go home this-a-way
Well, if my Mama she says so, I'll railroad no more
I'll side-track my train and go home
And go home, and go home
Side-track my train and go home
If I die a Railroad Man
I wanna be buried in the sand
So I can hear old No. 9 as she rolls by
She rolls by, she rolls by
Hear old No. 9 as she rolls by


2. INDIAN WORLD

I've been thinking about my childhood
And what your books they taught me
If things don't work out like they ought to
It wouldn't matter much to me
Yes, Look at the land
And see all the destruction
In a land that once was mine
Well, do you go forward?
I don't think so
We'll have it all back in due time

My heart belongs in an Indian world
A place that I can call my home
I've been livin' in a white man's world
Taught nothing of my own
We used to soar high as the eagles
Far as we could fly
Then you came along lookin' for your targets
Now the eagles they have died
You killed our fathers
Raped our mothers
Killed our sons and daughters too
We break your laws
We don't mean to
We can't help but what we are

My heart belongs in an Indian world
A place that I can call my home
I've been livin' in a white man's world
Taught nothing


3. STARS

The time has come for me to say
Things I should've said, oh, yesterday
Some people I knew thought they had it made
Forgot their friends when they hit the stage
And they didn't seem to care
Oh, Their eyes were blinded by the glare
Well, I knew those boys when they were down and out
It looked like the world had turned 'em down
Now that everybody knows their name
I guess to them it's just a game
They've got their money and their cars
Oh, Lord, I guess they're Stars
You know sometimes it's hard to see
Your friends ain't what they always seem to be
If by chance I don't get through
They won't be comin' home to you
By now I hope they realize
What's in my heart and not my eyes
What's in my heart and not my eyes
What's in my heart and not my eyes
Oh, yeah, they're Stars
They're only Stars


4. NOT ANOTHER MAKER

As I'm dreamin' about my life
The one that I had before
As my thoughts they all drift away
I know, yes, I know
There'll never be another
Not another maker
Not another maker
There'll never be another

Now I look at empty faces
The kind that just stare back
I guess I've been a thousand places
Lord, and I know

There'll never be another
Not another maker
Not another maker
There'll never be another
There'll never be another
Not another maker

Bring all the joy that you can bring'
To the center of the earth
It sings as thunderclap through
All the Heavens it rings
On your horse with silver wings
Hurl your lance across the sky
Whirlwinds play as it flies by
Reach out your hand and touch the sky
Know how it feels to fly
I close my eyes and drift away
To another kind of place
As long as I know that I can play
My life won't be a waste

There'll never be another
Not another maker
Not another maker
There'll never be another
There'll never be another
Not another maker


5. BORN TO ROCK 'N' ROLL

Now I've been workin' hard for so many years
Just tryin' to get myself by
Can't talk to people you don't know
That's why some of you die
Well, I live so hard and I learn so well
Just to push myself along
But if you're born to Rock & Roll, you should know
I've drank 'shine from a Mason jar
To pass my time away
Set my sights on a distant star
'Cause I wanted it that way
I learned to read and write, sing and fight
And all those other things
I'm gonna Rock & Roll, baby,
For you tonight

I'm comin' home
Lord, don't you know
When the wind it blows
I was born to Rock & Roll
I'm on my way to see Mr. "J.J."
To tell of things that I've seen
To show him, baby, that I got more
Moves than your local Cajun Queen
Can't talk to people that you don't know
That's why some of you die
But if you're born to Rock & Roll
Then you should know

I'm comin' home
Lord, don't you know
When the wind it blows
I was born to Rock & Roll
I was born to Rock & Roll
I was born to Rock & Roll


6. TAKE A TRAIN

Bought a ticket in a transit station
Headed southbound for home
To take a look at my dear Mom and Papa
Show them their simple son
Take a listen...
Didn't know what I was headed back home for
All I knew it was time
When the train it pulled into the station
Far from a maddening crowd
Station master took out his gold locket
Just to check his time
People pushing to pick up their baggage
To take another line

Just take a train now
Be on time if you want to stay
You've got to take a train now, Mama
You know it's the only way

So now, if you get to wanna see your home, now
Just you get down on your knees
Listen to the birds that do surround you
Singing their sweet harmony
Buy your ticket from a Station Master
One-way ticket for home
Get along and kiss your troubles good-bye, now
It's time to get on board

Just take a train now
Be on time if you want to stay
You've got to take a train now, Mama
You know it's the only way


7. BIG WHEELS

Yes, I see you drivin' in your new limousine
All that you own is shiny and clean
You get your money by stealin' them blind
You know you're one of a kind
You're flyin' high every single day
Eatin' your steaks while someone else pays
But it's all right 'cause I don't need it from you
I don't count on you to help me through

Big Wheels keep runnin' over your prey
Stealin' more money everyday
Watch out, honey, don't get in their way

Don't count your money, not right away
It'll catch up to you, oh, someday
Then what will happen to your dream
They'll take away your new limousine

Big Wheels keep runnin' over your prey
Stealin' more money everyday
Watch out, honey don't get in their way

I see you drivin' in your new limousine
All that you own is shiny and clean
You get your money by stealin' them blind
Good Lord, you know you're one of a kind
Big Wheels keep runnin' over your prey
Stealin' more money everyday
Watch out, honey don't get in their way


8. I STAND ALONE

Take a seat by the window, it seems the road
It stretches out for miles in front of me
To the next town to sing out another tune
My friends and I, you know, will sing them just for you
I stand alone, I stand alone
Seen the heartbreaks everyday and so have you
Seems we can't do without it, you know that it's true
As many towns I've seen and many more to come
I'll keep playing my music till my life on earth is done

Yes, I stand alone and funny as it may seem
It's not in spirit 'cause some people are with me
I've played around your towns and many have made me cry
I stand alone, in the open, not knowing why

I'll get my bags, pack my clothes, and put 'em away
Think of tomorrow 'cause tomorrow's a brand new day
Think of all the friends I've made away from home
I'm glad they were with me as I stood alone

Yes, I stand alone and funny as it may seem
It's not in spirit 'cause some people are with me
I've played around your towns and many have made me cry
I stand alone, in the open, not knowing why
I stand alone, I stand alone
I stand alone, I stand alone
I stand alone, I stand alone
