Well the first thing I remember is the smell of burnin' cinders 
And the sound of that old whistle on the wind
I always wondered where the train was going 
But I never cared at all where it had been

Yeah the first chance I got, I was gone like a shot
 Following that old dream of mine
My only desire was to catch that flyer 
And ride it to the end of the line

My life is like a Dixie Flyer
She don't ever look back
So pour on the coal
Let the good times roll
Till the train runs out of track 

Full speed ahead no I ain't stoppin' yet
I feel that drivin' wheel down in my soul
I been some places where the train don't stop
Some places where the train don't even go

Yeah some are satisfied just to sit on the side
And watch as the trains roll by
That ain't me, there's too much to see
 Gonna roll until the day that I die

My life is like a Dixie Flyer
She don't ever look back
So pour on the coal
Let the good times roll
Till the train runs out of track 

Till the train runs out of track 
Till the train runs out of track
