Riff over verse (G)

Bought myself a one way ticket

On a train just about to leave

The sun rose steady

Through the pines and the pettiness

The whine of the whistle and relief


Chorus

     D

It's all the emotion I can conjure in a moment

                                              G

Like erosion of the land to the sea

     D                               D

The train rolls over an unnamed river

        D                        C                         (riff)        

But I give her one and tell her that she's free


You pay your fare  and the train will take you

As far as your will to go

I said my share and she said I think you

Better think it it over well and slow


Through a mountain pass the snow melts steady

And a trickle then becomes a flow

A winding stream becomes a river when it's ready

And forever find a way to grow


I watch the sun sink into the ocean

Think about a thousand things

The train on the tracks in a forward motion

And the winter rolling into spring


The sun set free like the river in the sea

And the trains never missed the beat

In perfect time, like a shadow of the dawn running quiet through the night like a thief


Chorus


I rub my eyes over murky water

Out the window just the sky and sea

On a lonely bridge in the middle of the ocean

Realizing that it's only me


In all directions the same reflection

A blue green memory

A mountain stream in the tall, dark pines

Where the sunlight always flees
