It was Mr. Jones, We`ve got to let you go It`s company policy You`ve got a pension though. Roll on, Southern Pacific On your silver rails On your silver rails Roll on, Southern Pacific On your silver rails Through the moonlight. I put in my time I put in my time Now I`m left to roll Down the long decline. I ain`t no brake man Ain`t no conductor But I would be though If I was younger. Roll on, Southern Pacific On your silver rails On your silver rails Roll on, Southern Pacific Roll on, on your silver rails.
