  • Tonight I've been counting railroad cars
    Clinking and grinding into the dark
    One of them passed with an open door
    And I pictured myself jumping on board
    What is the chance of that
    What is the chance of that

    Well I always had this thing about trains
    A lonesome sound like a man in pain
    Going somewhere they don't lose track
    Some folks leave and they don't look back
    What is the chance of that
    What is the chance of that

    But I have believed since I was a little bitty girl
    That there were rules of cause and effect
    And they slowly shaped my world
    But pain and hard times they come and they go
    Like some blindfolded angel somewhere saying
    Eeny meeny miny moe
    What is the chance of that
    What is the chance of that
    What is the chance of that
    What is the chance of that

    Why do I feel restless inside
    Maybe I'm part of a wandering tribe
    I want to check my family tree
    I think there's a little nomad in me
    What is the chance of that
    What is the chance of that

    Life is a thing you drink in deep
    The journey is hard and the journey's sweet
    Maybe I'll search and maybe I'll find
    Things I wanted were already mine
    What is the chance of that
    What is the chance of that

    I have believed since I was a little bitty girl
    That there were rules of cause and effect
    And they slowly shaped my world
    But pain and hard times they come and they go
    Like some test of faith that purifies my
    Weak belief into something gold
    What is the chance of that
    What is the chance of that
    What is the chance of that
    What is the chance of that

    What is the chance of that
    Oh, what are the chances
    What is the chance of that
    What is the chance of that

    Tonight I've been counting railroad cars
    Clinking and grinding into the dark
    One of them passed with an open door
    And I pictured myself jumping on board
    What is the chance of that
    What is the chance of that Writer/s: AMY GRANT, AMY LEE GRANT, WAYNE KIRKPATRICK
