​Keep This Train A-Rollin'

This song is by The Doobie Brothers and appears on the album One Step Closer (1980).

Sure as that old whistle's blowin'
There's a tug upon my heart
Somewhere in that misty mornin' light
There's another brand new start

Sometimes I'd love to see this end
And watch it fall apart
'Cause it's still such a long road
And we're a long way from the start

You know anyone can say what's wrong
That don't make it right to me
We weren't born into this life
To walk away from everything

And you get the blues in your stride
And all you need is a song to survive
You think by now we wouldn't know that

We've gotta keep this train a-rollin'
We ain't gonna break down on this highway
We could be here waitin', worried, wonderin'
Wishin' we were somewhere other than right here
But baby we're right here

Once you get the blues in your stride
All you need is a song to survive
But don't you think by now we wouldn't know that

We've gotta keep this train a-rollin'
We ain't gonna break down on this highway
We could sit here waitin', worried, wonderin'
Wishin' we were somewhere other than right here

We've gotta keep this train a-rollin'
We don't wanna break down on this highway
Ain't no use of waitin', worried, wonderin'
Wishin' we were somewhere other than right here
