Frank Sinatra - "On The Atchison Topeka Santa Fe" lyrics

What a lovely trip, Im feeling so fresh and alive

And Im so glad to arrive, its all so grand

Its easy to see you dont need a palace

To feel like alice in wonderland

Back in ohio where I come from

Ive done a lot of dreamin and Ive travelled some

But I never thought Id see the day

When I ever took a ride on the santa fe

(wanna take a ride on the santa fe)

I would lean across my window sill

And hear the whistle echoin across the hill

Then Id watch the lights till they fade away

On the atchison, topeka and the santa fe

What a thrill (what a great big wonderful thrill)

With the wheels a-singin "westward ho"

Right from the day I heard them start

cross the kansas plains from new mexico
I guess Ive got a little gypsy in my heart

When Im old and grey and settled down

If I ever get a chance to sneak away from town

Then Ill spend my busmans holiday

On the atchison, topeka and the santa fe

All aboard! (we came across the country lickety-split)

(rollin ninety miles an hour), I cant believe Im here at last

Woo-oo-ooo! (when you go travellin, its best for you

To take the atchison, topeka and the santa fe!)

I cant believe that anything could go so fast

Then you pull that throttle, whistle blows

A-huffin and a-puffin and away she goes

All aboard for california*, hey!

On the atchison (on the atchison)

On the atchison, topeka (on the atchison, topeka)

On the atchison, topeka (on the atchison, topeka)

On the atchison, topeka and the santa fe!

*california pronounced "californ-eye-ay"
