Back On Track

Chas Cochran - © 2011 BMI

Young man standing by the road with his thumb in the air...
One by one cars pass by, does not seem to care...
Got his eyes fixed on something else way, way, way down the road...

Got his back to Chicago, eyes fixed on the road heading east
Of the things on his mind, the passing of cars is the least...
Somewhere back there must have gotten distracted somehow

(Chorus)

Like a steam locomotive derailed sittin' there blowin' his stack...
Looks like he might need some help so's to get back on track

Off ramps and on ramps, strangers and rides sometimes shared...
Pitfalls and pratfalls, trying to avoid traps and snares...
Got to stay focused...there's dangerous road up ahead...

(Chorus)

Like a steam locomotive derailed sittin' there blowin' his stack...
Looks like he might need some help so's to get back on track
