  • Southern Pacific
    Red, white and blue
    Where are we running to?
    Over the wide plains
    Take me to someplace new

    Remember me to Roxy Anne
    You know she's still lovely
    Tell her I was on the move
    The last time you saw me
    That you only saw the back of my head

    Climb through the timbers
    And I'll breathe the dust
    Of cosmos and wild rose bud
    And thunder the unknowns
    In the phosphorous white glow
    Of saber-tooth bones in the dusk

    Remember me to Roxy Anne
    You know she's still lovely
    Tell her I was on the move
    The last time you saw me
    That you only saw the back of my head

    Remember me to Roxy Anne
    You know she's still lovely
    Tell her I was barely there
    The last time you saw me
    That you only saw the back of my head

    Southern Pacific
    Take me to meet
    Whatever is hunting
    For me Writer/s: JOSHUA RITTER
