John Denver's, "Flying for Me"
The Lyrics:
And I wanted to wish on the Milky Way and dance upon a falling star
I wanted to give myself and free myself and join myself with it all
Given the chance to dream, it can be done, the promise of tomorrow is real
Children of spaceship Earth, the future belongs to us all
Why:
Earth is very much a real place, and it's in the Milky Way galaxy. The Milky Way has millions of stars which could be wished on.

John Denver's, "On The Atchison, Topeka And The Santa Fe"
The Lyrics:
And they'll all want a lift to Brown's Hotel, 'cause lots of them been traveling for quite a spell all the way from Philadelphia on The Atchison, Topeka and The Santa Fe. All aboard, all aboard, oo oo oo. Let her rip, let her rip, Mr. Engineer, Gotta go, gotta go far away from here. While the man at the fire shovels in the coals, stick your head out the cab and watch the drivers roll. See the towns and the roads go a whizzing by, Fare thee well Laramie and Rocky Mountain High, Yes sirree, here we are, going all the way, mustn't quit till we hit California.
Why:
This classic song about a major railroad mentions the three cities the railway originally served: Atchison, KS, Topeka, KS, and Santa Fe, NM. John Denver's version also mentions Philadelphia, PA, Laramie, WY, and California, various locations around the USA that a train traveler might visit.
