Track Name: Two Steps on the Train
Verse 1

Nine o'clock walking in the door, tired from another day
Twenty six feels all to young to be livin' life from pay to pay
Tom the baker sat next to me with that same old look on his face
(and he said)
I wouldn't be much a friend to you to let you go on killing time this way

(He said)

You can't go wasting all your days
Down in sugar hollow
So my advice to you my friend is to get out while you can (cause)
You only got one life to live
Till we all go out the same
It ain't a dress rehearsal kid so take two steps on the train

Verse 2

Well, Two months later we were heading north
Three boys and a case of booze
Broke down on 81, south of Syracuse
So we said, "Bottoms up" yeah we hopped the truck
Turned to our walking shoes
Didn't bother even locking up, we left nothing there to lose


Verse 3

Yeah we, Hit ground in a familiar town
With a few friends there to boot
Had a plan and we started a band, called it the Northern Route
Worked in bars to support our cause
Then we'd hang around and brew
Brought a keg to every show and raised hell for a time or two



You take two steps on the train
Two steps on the train
Two steps on the train
Yeah you take two steps on the train
