Prosperity Bound (vocal by Tom Saunders)
Daniel Ross (SOCAN 2000)


If you see me standing on the platform
With that old black suitcase that I found
Then you'll know which train
I'll be steppin' on I will be prosperity bound

Well I'm done with walkin' through this city
Yes I'm finished pacing 'round this town
Gonna write you a letter from a passenger car
And you won't see me around
There's a call for workin' men out Westward
Far beyond the yellow Prairie wide
If this life's chalk full of takin' chances
Gonna climb on that train and ride

If you see me standing on the platform
With that black suitcase by my side
Then you'll know which train I got a ticket for
And I hope you'll be satisfied

When I get me there I will be happy
When I'm smilin' I'll know I've arrived
I got eighteen dollars get me started
Gonna find me a job and a wife
So if you see me standing on the platform
With that black suitcase that I found
Then you'll know which train I'll be steppin' on
I will be prosperity bound
