Freight Train

Original and similar lyrics
I just came down from Chippewa Had as station wagon and a hundred dollars Thinking about the girl I'd lost a year before I hadn't seen her for some time Thought I might go on by when your memory came flooding in and you closed that door. Wish it was a freight train baby Wish it was a diesel locomotive I'd come whistling down your track crashing in your door. Wish it was a freight train baby Wish it didnt have a heart You need a shovel for the coal just to get me started Wish it was a freight train baby Wish it was a freight train baby Wish it was a freight train. Well every time I talk to you I hear your jealous lines I feel like I've been left abandoned on some old railway side And every time I hear your voice my water just gets cold My stoker will not stoke and my boiler will not boil. Wish it was a freight train baby Wish it was a diesel locomotive I'd come whistling down your track crashing in your door. Wish it was a freight train baby Wish it didnt have a heart You need a shovel for the coal just to get me started Wish it was a freight train baby Wish it was a freight train baby Wish it was a freight train. Well every time I fell behind I could not get ahead I wish someone would pull the lever and give me a little sand And every time I slip behind even further back I wish some switch man would come out of the fog and change my track. Wish it was a freight train baby Wish it was a diesel locomotive I'd come whistling down your track crashing in your door. Wish it was a freight train baby Wish it didnt have a heart You need a shovel for the coal just to get me started Wish it was a freight train baby Wish it was a freight train baby Wish it was a freight train. Wish it was a freight train baby Wish it was a diesel locomotive I'd come whistling down your track crashing in your door. Wish it was a freight train baby Wish it didnt have a heart You need a shovel for the coal just to get me started Wish it was a freight train baby Wish it was a freight train baby Wish it was a freight train.

Freight Train

AARON WATSON "The Underdog"
I'm gonna give em that 2, 4, 4 on the floor, like an outlaws boys on the day Before. got the pretty girls out there begging for more, Gotta give em all what They came here for. Doin' my thing singing my song, Right on track I'm chugging Along. I'm here and gone like yesterday, Rolling like an old freight train. On a Wing and a prayer and a glorified greyhound bus, Flying down the road running 9-0 and kicking up dust. Drinkin' truck stop coffee Countin' birds on those Telephone wires. Burnin' the midnight oil And the tread off these old goodyear Tires. I'm gonna give em that 2, 4, 4 on the floor, Like an outlaws boys on the day Before. got the pretty girls out there begging for more, Gotta give em all what they came here for. Doin' my thing singing my song, right on track I'm chugging Along. I'm here and gone like yesterday, rolling like an old freight train. And sometimes my mind is a million miles away, I know you're sound asleep at Home while I'm on this stage. and I'm missing you Wishing I was kissing you Everyday. but girl I gotta keep rollin', Rollin like an old freight train. and its a Mighty lonesome sound when there's not soul around To help you ease your pain, But you gotta keep rollin'. Rollin' like an old freight train. I'm gonna give em that 2, 4, 4 on the floor, like an outlaws boys on the day before. Got the pretty Girls out there begging for more, Gotta give em all what they came here for. Doin' my thing singing my song, right on track I'm chugging along. I'm here and gone like yesterday, rolling like an old freight train, Comin' on down the line Feel that diesel engine whine, smell the smoke stack, Hear the gears grind full steam ahead halfway out of my mind I'm too far gone to be turning back Going clickity clack down the railroad tracks. I'm here and gone like yesterday Rolling like an old freight train. just like an old freight train. Tell me do you wanna ride this train.

Spend A Little Time

JOAN ARMATRADING "Whatever's For Us"
I've been waking up every morning Not one ray of sunshine through my pane I've been sleeping wrapped warm in sadness, yeah Not a smile upon my face Until one day Glad day That you came along I've been singing this song Trying to chase the frown away Hear me singing now, sadness I can't be with you I don't need your hand no more Laughter, I'd like to be with you Why don't you come knocking, knocking Knocking at my door Oh I'd like to spend a little time, baby By your fire I'd like to spend a little time, baby By your door And if he calls me, smile on baby I'll come running, oh yeah yeah Just to spend a little time, baby By your door

Freight Train Blues

BOB DYLAN "Bob Dylan"
I was born in Dixie in a boomer shed Just a little shanty by the railroad track Freight train was it taught me how to cry The holler of the driver was my lullaby I got the freight train blues Oh Lord mama, I got them in the bottom of my rambling shoes And when the whistle blows I gotta go baby, don't you know Well, it looks like I'm never gonna lose the freight train blues. Well, my daddy was a fireman and my mama-ha She was the only daugther of an enginer My sweetheart was a brakeman and it ain't no joke Seems a waste to get a good man broke I got the freight train blues Oh Lord mama, I got them in the bottom of my rambling shoes And when the whistle blows I gotta go mama, don't you know Well, it looks like I'm never gonna lose the freight train blues. Well, the only thing that makes me laugh again Is a southbound whistle on a southbound train Every place I wanna go I never can go Because you know I got the freight train blues Oh Lord mama, I got them in the bottom of my rambling shoes.

Big Stuff

BILLIE HOLIDAY "Billie Holiday - The Complete Decca Sessions"
Leonard Bernstein So you cry What's it about, baby? You ask why Blues had to go and pick you So you go Down to the shore, kid's stuff Don't you know There's honey in the store for you, big stuff Let's take a ride on my gravy train The door open wide So you stare Call it despair, baby Don't you care I'm on the square about you Let's have a try It maybe that you're my guy Let's take a ride on my gravy train The door open wide Come in from out of the rain

The Evening Train

JOHNNY CASH "American V: A Hundred Highways"
I heard the laughter at the depot But my tears fell like the rain When I saw them place that long white casket In the baggage coach of the evening train The baby's eyes are red from weeping Its little heart is filled with pain Oh Daddy cried they're taking Mama Away from us on the evening train As I turned to walk away from the depot It seemed I heard her call my name Take care of my baby and tell him darling That I'm going home on the evening train I pray that God will give me courage To carry on 'til we meet again It's hard to know she's gone forever They're carrying her home on the evening train
