WORDS

COTTON BELT

What do you do when your dreams come true? What do you wish for then?

You might just give up and jump ship or take the Cotton Belt around the bend.

 

Sleeping with my head on an old empty grain bag.

It makes no difference to you.

We all know that home is just a place to rest your bones and lose the blues.

 

Ain’t nobody but you and the man who runs the train.

Hop into that boxcar when you’ve done it all and seen it all.

Everything to lose and none to gain.

 

What do you do when real life and Disneyland begin to blend?

You can keep the Matterhorn, I’ll take the Cotton Belt around the bend.

 

Locomotive crashing through. 

And you can bet the bite is much worse than the bark.

Those tracks whisper to me like a woman by your side here in the dark.

 

Ain’t nobody but you and the man who runs the train.

Hop into that boxcar when you’ve done it all and seen it all.

Everything to lose and none to gain.

 

What do you do when you should be happy? Do you just pretend?

You can keep your Cadillac I’ll take the Cotton Belt around the bend.

You can have your Cadillac I’ll take the Cotton Belt around the bend.

You can have your Cadillac I’ll take the Cotton Belt around the bend.
