lyrics

On the edge of Geary, a water tower reigns
Over corn fields, suburban lanes
I used to play there when I was a child
Me and the buttercups together growing wild

Rolling hills sing sweet hallelujahs

All across the land
Rolling hills sing sweet hallelujahs
Take my hand

Me and my friend Kathy, we'd each leave our house
Sneak out at midnight, watch the trains going south
Tell each other someday we'd leave
Geary forever her and me

Rolling hills sing sweet hallelujahs
All across the land
Rolling hills sing sweet hallelujahs
Take my hand

Pack your bags, we'll leave tonight
Midnight Flyer's coming soon
We'll get our tickets
And all our dreams come true

We both left Geary right after high school
But not together like we were supposed to do
It’s been years now, but when I look back
I still see Kathy running down those tracks

Rolling hills sing sweet hallelujahs

All across the land
Rolling hills sing sweet hallelujahs
Take my hand
