I’m out on the road and I’m feeling alone.
I turn the stereo on.
Something reaches inside where I usually hide
As I play my favourite songs.
Yes, I’m floating on steel and the beast is purring along.

We’ve got the screaming machine:
He’s singing the blues as if he’s gonna go insane.
And the axeman’s bending and hammering steel
Trying to exorcise the pain.
And the rhythm boys are pumping out the beat
Like a runaway train.

Take me back, take me back,
Take me back to where it all began.
Take me back, take me back.
Take me, take me back.
