ELTON JOHN - Rolling Western Union Lyrics

Music by elton johnLyrics by bernie taupinNever releasedI've served upon this railroad for longer than I knowMy father and his father did the same thing long agoTo keep the western union rolling down towards the seaThe benefits of this great line built for you and meSo rolling western union, you can roll on to the seaTen thousand miles of beatin' steel has made a man out of meIn every state I've driven home a rivet with my handsOh it's rolling western union rolling onward, onward through our landIt's friends of mine who died upon the building of this lineIrishmen and chinamen and some from the british islesI've even seen the convicts come to work here for a whileBefore the law caught up with them and sent them back to trialI had a wife while on the job a hundred miles on backShe died in oklahoma and I laid her by the trackAll that's left is a wooden cross upright on a moundAnd every time the train rolls past, it rumbles in the ground
