Lyrics

Walked out of my home & I followed the trail,
Lodestone in my belly, cold milk from the well.
Breadcrumbs in the dirt, apple seeds in my pale,
Wine in my pocket, it's good for what ails you.

Looked up at the sky & I was met by the trees,
Cold air in my lungs, barefoot in the leaves.
Took the map from my pocket, and traced the line to the sea.
Tipped back the bottle & drank to the lees.

Woke up on the beach & I looked out to sea,
Stood up in the sand & I walked to the reed.
Built up a raft from the trunk of a tree,
Climbed up aboard & I sailed to the east.

Lyrics

I ride the train
over rugged hills & plains
past every town without a name
I ride the train

I’ve climbed the mountains
& I’ve crossed the fertile plains
I’ve paddled rivers
& I’ve dove down into lakes

I’ve searched the desert
& I’ve rode the ocean’s waves
I’ve chased the horizon
& I’ve crawled through all the caves

Buscándote en este tren
Al fin del mundo llegaré

I ride the train
through gusts of wind & heavy rain
past every face & every grave
I ride the train

I’ve searched for the pearl in the oyster shell
I’ve dug for the spring, underneath the well
I’ve tracked ocean tides, countless ebbs & swells
to find the meaning of this endless tall told tale
