Lyrics

Ten Pound Horses 
 
There’s a train leavin’ out of here tonight
 
Headed down for Memphis,Tennessee
 
And as we make our way ‘round the bend and we sling shot down the rail
 
We’re goin’ down to Memphis
 
We’re goin’ to go see the King
 
I hear the clanking of the box carts on the rail
 
I hear the screeching of the wheels on the steel, on the steel
 
 
 
(Chorus)
 
And it’s days like this
 
And it’s days like this
 
That I feel like runnin’
 
That I feel like runnin’
 
‘Till there ain’t no more to go
 
‘Till there ain’t no more to go
 
With ten-pound horses
 
 
 
I look out the box cart door
 
And I see America passin’ me by
 
I see the old hobo man sittin’ next to me
 
Or is he a man with courage
 
That decided to do what he wanted to do
 
 
 
And am I a soul with courage
 
Or am I, oh, just a coward
 
Who follows everywhere so blindly
 
Like sheep being led to slaughter
 
Like sheep being led to slaughter
 
 
 
(Repeat Chorus)
