IRON WHEELS

Yeah I fell asleep in a boxcar in a freight rain a-headin' north
And I woke up half past midnight from a sweet dream that touched my heart
I was standin' at your door and I was just about to kiss your smilin' face
It made me feel oh so warm, I put both my arms around your waist
But that train whistle opened my eyes
And now it's moonlight on the mountains, the stars are shinin' on high
Iron wheels are my home tonight
I wish you were here by my side
I'm comin' home, I'm comin' home, I'm comin' home to be with you
I'm comin' home, I'm comin' home, I'm comin' home to be with you

Yeah I fell in with bad company, some good ole boys from out of town
They said "You wanna be a rich boy?" I thought of you and I said "Yeah."
We drove down to Las Vegas and we borrowed a Casino money truck
The guards were tied but not hurt, we changed our cars and split up
This train is rollin' right down the track
And now it's moonlight on the mountains, the stars are shinin' on high
Iron wheels are my home tonight
I wish you were here by my side
I'm comin' home, I'm comin' home, I'm comin' home to be with you
I'm comin' home, I'm comin' home, I'm comin' home to be with you

Yeah we planned to meet in the mountains in a cabin to split the loot
But the law got there before me, with machine guns ready to shoot
I was watchin' from the woods and they said "You'll never take us dead or alive"
Then the bullets started to fly, I'm runnin' through the snow for my life
Jumped a freight train and took a ride
And now it's moonlight on the mountains, the stars are shinin' on high
Iron wheels are my home tonight
I wish you were here by my side
I'm comin' home, I'm comin' home, I'm comin' home to be with you
I'm comin' home, I'm comin' home, I'm comin' home to be with you
