A A7 That big eight-wheeler rolling down the track A A7 means your true-loving daddy ain't coming back. D A I'm moving on, I'm moving on, E you were flying too high, for my little old sky, A and I'm moving on. A A7 That big loud whistle as it blew and blew A A7 said, hello to the southland, we're coming to you. D A I?m moving on, oh hear my song, E you had the laugh on me, now I?m setting you free, A and I'm moving on. A A7 Mister Fireman won't you please listen to me, A A7 I got a pretty mama in Tennessee. D A Keep moving on, keep rolling on, E you gotta shovel the coal, let this rattler roll, A and keep moving me on. A A7 Mister Engineer, take that throttle in hand, A A7 this rattler's the fastest in the southern land, D A to keep moving on, I stayed away too long, E you gonna ease my mind, and put me there on time, A and keep moving on.

D A I'm moving on, I'm moving on, E well, you've broken your vow, and it's all over now, A and I'm moving on.
