END OF THE STEEL
Daniel Ross (SOCAN 2000)


Henrietta was her name
The portrait painted looks a lot like you
She was guided to the New Land
By Father in heaven,
An invisible hand or two
She said she would tame what's wild
Turn the savage heart to something new
Caught her train and headed west
Determined that her level best she'd do

She's headed for the end,
She's goin' to the end of the steel
She's headed for the end, she's goin' to the end
Of the steel rail

Jones he was a steady man with a silver badge
The law of the Prairie town
Watched the drifters come and go
But one part of him was never settled down
Wonderin' 'bout the green out west
Strugglin' through the dust a blowin' through
Dreamin' of spendin' his final days in a sea-breeze fair With his toes in the ocean blue

He's headed for the end,
He's headed for the end of the steel
He's goin' tothe end, he's goin' to the end
Of the steel rail

Me I come from a humble town
And the boy in me will always haunt that place
I was born with pioneer's blood and "Get Ye West" Written all over my face
Some folks never leave their home
Put down roots on old familiar ground
While some souls got to travel
'Til they feel it in their bones to settle down

I'm headed for the end,
I'm headed for the end of the steel
I'm goin' to the end,
I'm goin' to the end of the steel rail
