Yes, that old Royal Hudson is bound to ride the big steel rails again

In those dark depression years,
with the poverty and tears,
and storm clouds of war drawing near,
the royal couple came to see a land they'd heard by name
and ride across the wilderness frontier.

The engine that was named to pull the royal train
was Hudson number twenty-eight five-o.
Though now she lies interned,
her sister has returned
to ride the rocky Howe Sound mountain shore.

Yes, that old Royal Hudson is bound to ride the big steel rails again

Once again we'll hear those sounds of yesteryear -
that haunting wail our fathers used to know,
and we'll look into the sky to see her plume that billows high

as she crawls along the rocky shore below.

Yes, that old Royal Hudson is bound to ride the big steel rails again

Ride on.
