Don't know whats ahead,
but I'm going to enjoy this next minute.
Don't know what's coming down the road,
could care less about its load.
Might be a big train steaming,
until then I'll be gleaming.
I will not stack the deck,
so the train will make a bigger wreck.

it's coming,
its always coming,
never fails to make its trip.
It runs right up to me,
get out of the way move!
I move for my own safety.
I always survive,
because I stop adding to the load.

When it runs away,
I just watch it leave.
Knowing I never added to the trip,
coming or going.
I walk away in peace,
see you next time big fellow.

Don't get mad at me,
cause I won't give you a load.
You ran over me a long time ago,
and I survived your worst.
If you're looking for cargo here,
I don't have any.

choo, choo on!

Best advice I've heard in a long time, Grady. Sometimes, we should just move out of the way, and let things pass.
