lyrics

Well it's summer time and the goin's fine
Gonna head on south down the red line
Ridin' this train wherever it'll go
Gonna see if we can get ourselves down to Mexico

It’s been three long weeks hoppin’ trains
Followed the Mississippi round to New Orleans
Fishin’ for some dinner haven’t eaten all day
Can’t buy a proper meal with nothin’ to pay

Hey hey, throw off your fears, be rid of your tears
Leave behind your pain as this train rolls on

Texas heat; New Mexico sky
Watching all them states as they fly by
It’s been a wild ride, I wouldn’t change a thing
Border’s comin’ up, c’mon let’s sing

Why are we here? It’s that same old question everywhere we go
Oh woah oh the only difference is we’re South of the Border
You can change where you go but it doesn’t change who you are
