       E                     A        E
We was wild-eyed kids from a railroad town
   E             A               B7
We aimed for the stars, tried to shoot Ďem all down
  E                       A       E
I made this my home, made Mary my wife
  E            A          B7          E
I work for the line and I will all my life

And I know this engine like the ends of my mind
Iíve run it too hard and Iíve run it on time
every inch of this track and every ounce of coal
runs through the heartland and runs through my soul

   A                        E
So Mary, wonít you reach up on the shelf
    C#m     A         B7
And hand me down some wine
   E              B7           A  E
Be leaving in the morning come 5:51
     E           A      B7   G  
Iíll sing it out on the main line 

The line runs through the mountains where east and west end
Iíll bet it runs clear to heaven and back down again
Iím a stranger to faces I see on the way
Dear Mary, are you dreaming of me today

Itís cold steel and wood, itís all tacked and tied down
itís a lone whistle blowiní, an American sound
Most times at night I whisper your name
Though the days have long changed I love you the same


These tracks moved this whole country, through depression and war
Built up some towns that ainít here no more
Itís been a life, itís been a liviní, itís kept me around 
And God bless you Mary, youíre the best thing Iíve found
