California Zephyr Lyrics

From the Great Salt Lakes of Utah
To California's golden shore
Colorado and Nevada
Through the deserts burnin' door

While she's circlin' through the canyons
Can't you see that mountain stream
It's the California Zephyr
The Union Pacific Queen

See her rockin' see her rollin'
As she rambles on her way
She left L.A. this mornin'
Burnin' up the right of way

In the distance hear her moanin'
Hear her lonesome whistle scream
It's the California Zephyr
The Union Pacific Queen

She leaves the city of the angels
Headin' for ole Santa Fe
She's a makin' nauts, she's makin' time
Just watch her swing and sway

And from way out in the darkness
See that headlight gleam
It's the California Zephyr
The Union Pacific Queen

From the Great Salt Lakes of Utah
To California's golden shore
Colorado and Nevada
Through the deserts burnin' door

While she's circlin' through the canyons
Can't you see that mountain stream
It's the California Zephyr
The Union Pacific Queen

It means the composer got it wrong: The CZ went to San Francisco, not LA; and it was operated by the Western Pacific, not the Union Pacific. Someone should make an attempt to get it right. makes Hank
