Lyrics

Workin’ On A Dream (The Railroad Song)

Long ago my great Grandad toiled in the sun
Workin’ through the prairies to the sea
Another mile, another rail ‘till the job was done
Workin’ on a dream.

Later on my Grandfather worked the CN line
Travelled this great land by sweat and steam
Daddy was a diesel man, at one time so was I
Workin’ on a dream.

Did you hear that lonesome whistle
Did you cry a final tear
On the day that the trains went away
when the dream disappeared

Long ago our forefathers sacrificed for me
Struggling through the winter snow and rain
Workin’ on a dream that stretched from sea to shining sea
So I could have the train

Repeat Chorus
