What a lovely tripI'm feeling so fresh an aliveAnd I'm so glad to arriveIt's all so grandIt's easy to seeYou don't need a palaceTo feel like AliceIn wonderlandBack in OhioWhere I come fromI've done a lot of dreamin an I've traveled someBut I never thought I'd see the dayWhen I ever took a ride on The Santa Fe(Wanna take a ride on The Santa Fe)I would lean across my window sillAnd hear the whistle echoin across the hillThen I'd watch the lights, till they fade awayOn the Atchison, Topeka, and The Santa FeWhat a thrill(What a great big wonderful thrill)With the wheels a singin westward hoRight from the day I heard them startCross the Kansas plains from New MexicoI guess I've got a little gypsy in my heart
When I'm old and gray and settled downIf I ever get a chance to sneak away from townThen I'll spend my busmen's holidayOn The Atchison, Topeka, and The Santa Fe(All aboard)!All aboard!(We came across the country, lickedy spilt)Ooo, ooo, ooo, ooo, oooI can't believe I'm here at lastOoooooooooooooo, ooo, ooo, ooo, oooI can't believe that anything could go so fastThen you pull that throttle whistle blowsA huffin and a puffin and a way she goesAll aboard for Calaforn-i-aOn The AtchisonOn The Atchison, TopekaOn The Atchison, Topeka, andOn The Atchison, Topeka, and The Santa Fe
This song won the Oscar for Best Original Song and is sung by Garland and the other cast members of the 1946 film The Harvey Girls. Lyricist Johnny Mercer came up with the title after seeing a train labeled as part of the Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe line and was struck by the rhythm of the cities" names. The lyrics are not strictly accurate to the film’s setting, which is Laramie, a city where the railroad line never reached.
