Red Streamliner

This song is by Little Feat and appears on the Compilation album Hoy-Hoy! (1981).

Red streamliner rolling
Rollin' down the track the things you see
With your wheels in motion through desert, mountain, ocean
I hear you every night, is it a dream?

Red streamliner rolling down, coming down on me
Red streamliner rolling, rolling long so free
Your past keeps coming back on me
To far and near, away from here

Where people move a mile a minute
This hurricane living with you and me in it
Long into the night, that whistle offers light

Red streamliner rolling
I wish you'd tell me 'bout the things you see
I'm looking, looking down the tracks you ride
Knowing that they're your only guide
I see them every night, is it a dream?
And when the sidewalks roll up at night
Just as stations pass by

Once the leader of the wild, wild west
Hurricane living been a lifelong song
Now you're cast of steel and cast aside
Broken dreams maybe, but you haven't died
