Ridin' The Train

I'm not a fan of flying at all. I don't care about the statistics. However I do love the train and the ferry trip between Christchurch and Wellington. I wrote this song about one such trip. I took the train and ferry and my husband flew to Wellington. 

Ridin' The Train - Music & Lyrics SL Miller

Chorus

I'm on this train, I’m on this train

Just cruising, watchin the world pass by

Sittin here relaxing, watchin land and sea

I’m on this train and it don’t bother me

Verse 1

I’m on my way to Wellington

I’m goin to see some friends up there

My man he won’t ride with me, he’s gonna fly instead

That don’t matter, I’m watching the scenery

Chorus

I'm on this train, I’m on this train

Just cruising, watchin the world pass by

Sittin here relaxing, watchin land and sea

I’m on this train and it don’t bother me

Verse 2

Hell I don’t fly, on them big planes

All that turbulence drives me insane

You won’t get me up there, in that big blue sky

Whenever I do, I think I’m gonna die

Chorus

I'm on this train, I’m on this train

Just cruising, watchin the world pass by

Sittin here relaxing, watchin land and sea

I’m on this train and it don’t bother me

Verse 3

New Zealands, so beautiful

Why would you wanna fly and miss it all

Rockin this train, is so peaceful

Sheep, sea and mountains, is what I want to see

Chorus

I'm on this train, I’m on this train

Just cruising, watchin the world pass by

Sittin here relaxing, watchin land and sea

I’m on this train and it don’t bother me

Verse 4

I’m on this boat, I’m on this boat,

Going through Queen Charlotte Sounds, I’m on this boat

Crossin Cook Strait, aboard Kaitaki

I’m on this boat and it don’t bother me

Crossin Cook Strait, aboard Kaitaki

I’m on this boat, it don’t bother me
