The carriage and the car.

The highway’s just by my right hand
The sun shines on the tar
Side by side, rail and road
The carriage and the car..

The carriage has a single track
the car sometimes two lanes
the carriage misses traffic snarls
yet the car’s the one that gains.

500 miles to Melbourne town
Ten hours on the track
In that time going by car
Your already coming back.

Once upon a time ago
Along this journey’s course
There were not any cars or trains
The trip was done by horse.

If one day all cars were gone
Some kind of disaster
If we were forced back to the horse
Would the train be that much faster?

The carriage and the car.
