Down around the corner, half a mile from here
See them long trains run, and you watch them disappear  Without love, where would you be now
 Without lo-o-o-ove

You know I saw miss Lucy down along the tracks 
She lost her home and her family and she won't be coming back
 Without love, where would you be right now
 Without lo-o-o-ove

Well the Illinois Central
And the Southern Central Freight 
Got to keep on pushin' mama
You know they're running late
 Without love, where would you be now
 Without lo-o-o-ve

Well the Illinois Central
And the Southern Central Freight 
Got to keep on pushin' mama
You know they're running late
 Without love, where would you be now
 Without lo-o-o-ve

Well the pistons keep on turning 
And the wheels go round and round 
The steel rails are cold and hard
For the miles that they go down

 Without love, where would you be right now
 Without lo-o-o-ve ooh
 Where would you be now

Mmm, got to get you, baby baby, won't you move it down?
Won't you move it down?
Baby, baby, baby, baby, won't you move it down?
When the big train run
When the train is movin' on I got to keep on movin'
Keep on movin'
Won't you keep on movin'?
 Gonna keep on movin'
