Lyrics

What a lovely trip I'm feeling so fresh an alive And I'm so glad to arrive It's all so grand It's easy to see You don't need a palace To feel like Alice In wonderland Back in Ohio Where I come from I've done a lot of dreamin an I've traveled some But I never thought I'd see the day When I ever took a ride on The Santa Fe (Wanna take a ride on The Santa Fe) I would lean across my window sill And hear the whistle echoin across the hill Then I'd watch the lights, till they fade away On the Atchison, Topeka, and The Santa Fe What a thrill (What a great big wonderful thrill) With the wheels a singin westward ho Right from the day I heard them start Cross the Kansas plains from New Mexico I guess I've got a little gypsy in my heart When I'm old and gray and settled down If I ever get a chance to sneak away from town Then I'll spend my busmen's holiday On The Atchison, Topeka, and The Santa Fe (All aboard)! All aboard! (We came across the country, lickedy spilt) Ooo, ooo, ooo, ooo, ooo I can't believe I'm here at last Ooooooooooooooo, ooo, ooo, ooo, ooo I can't believe that anything could go so fast Then you pull that throttle whistle blows A huffin and a puffin and a way she goes All aboard for Calaforn-i-a On The Atchison On The Atchison, Topeka On The Atchison, Topeka, and On The Atchison, Topeka, and The Santa Fe
