silver superliner lyrics – amy cook

well i was born, underneath the shadow of a big red bridge

i grew up on the graves of the oranges, in a trembling town.

then i headed south, all the worlds an oyster when your 17,

and you’re trying to get a piece of that american dream, it can wear you down

chorus
someday i’ll head off to new york city, visit graceland and memphis tennessee

from the west coast, to the sh*r*s of carolina, on a silver superliner, silver superliner.

time rushes by, everybody’s flying on a big jet plane,
everybody’s getting somewhere right away, and ahead of time

and i’m way behind, i guess it doesn’t matter where i’m going these days.
and if it takes me 40 nights yeah and 40 days, well i guess that’s just fine.

someday i’ll head out to new york city, visit graceland and memphis tennessee
from the west coast to the sh*r*s of carolina, on a silver super liner, silver superliner.

they say every cloud has its silver lining, way down here well the sun’s always shining.
you never know what you might wind up finding, all aboard, yeah this train’s leavin…

ah oooo, ah oooo

someday i’ll head off to new york city, visit graceland and memphis tennessee
from the west coast, to the sh*r*s of carolina, on a silver superliner, silver superliner, silver……….
