Slow Intro. Station man said, Where d'you wanna ticket to?
I replied that Heaven would be nice!
Take me to a destination - anywhere will do,
Just to stop me feeling blue.

1. Sittin' here and watchin' as the trees go by,
Sentimental journey and I don't know why.
You decided there's a better way to live,
I decided there's a better way to give.

Refrain 1. I'm on the Train of Freedom, tryin' to find my way.
Way down the line, things will be fine,
The future will be mine.
I'm on the Train of Freedom one more time.
