Freight Train Boogie

Original and similar lyrics
This song was first released on the All Aboard! album. It is the only album it has been released on. Casey Jones he was a mighty man But now he's resting in the promised land The only thing he could understand Was an eight wheel driver under his command He made the freight train boogie All the time He made the freight train boogie As he rolled down the line Whoo whoo, wah wah Whoo whoo, wah wah Whoo whoo, wah wah Whoo whoo, wah wah He made the freight train boggle As he rolled down the line Words and music by Kevin Griffin

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.

Like A Freight Train

JOHN HIATT "The Open Road"
Keep an eye on my blind spots There's too many Keep lookin' for some light But there isn't any Was top dead center baby Now my motor's gone soft I used to roll through here like a freight train But my wheels come off Got the ring my sister gave me Said it was my mom's The day she died of cancer I stole her morphine and gone Oh, I lived like a lion in Nashville For a couple more years I used to roll through here like a freight train But I slipped my gears I paid a price for everything You can't play it down They'll kick you off an empty boxcar And leave you in this town I only want the best for you I passed it somewhere along the way I used to roll through here like a freight train Baby what can I say? I had sunshine in my kitchen Butter on my toast Coffee brewed up in a lovin' cup In the presence of the Holy Ghost But I just kept comin' and goin' You couldn't stop crying Used to roll through here like a freight train Must've been outta my mind Don't think you never got to me Oh, baby you really did Your love is all I ever think of Hurts to keep it hid But I'm not foolin' anybody Only myself for a while I used to roll through here like a freight train I used to make you smile

Enfilade

AT THE DRIVE-IN "Relationship Of Command"
this could last us all a lifetime limbs intact, untouched on the screen of a video tape confined to bedposts we wait as lepers upheld at knife's reach we covet all the status quo this syringe will take a lifespan it's filled with bait and tackle try and catch us if you can sacrifice on railroad tracks freight train coming unconscious tied and gagged freight train coming meet us at the corner of fifth and pontiac make sure that no one else is with you if you wish to see them alive again then humor me with this request humor me with this request in basements we will hide amnesia in our alibis they kept a close eye on your get well incentive

Don't Stop (For Anything)

JONNY LANG "Turn Around"
Living in the back of this car Had a wind up in this place It never should have gotten this far I was such a fool to run away I can't believe I'm begging to this trash Back home I had seated the table The only thing that's holding me back Is my inability to be grateful But today I finally had enough I'm sick and tired of This kind of life I listen to the words inside Singin', I roll like a freight train I blow like a hurricane Yeah, I run like a Mustang Don't stop for anything Only saying, journey of a thousand miles Starts when you take the first step Travel for a little while And it won't be coming back again Now lighten my Lord, lighten my soul Please don't leave this side of road Negativity brings misery All just could see the history And I see the storm is finally gone The sun is rising on A brand new day Another like it's in my way I will roll like a freight train And blow like a hurricane Gonna run like a Mustang Don't stop, don't stop for anything I will never roll like a freight train Gonna fly like a jet plane Running back like a boomerang I won't stop for anything, hey Today I finally had enough I'm sick and tired of This kind of life I listen to the words inside I will roll like a freight train Gonna blow like a hurricane, well Gotta run like a Mustang I won't stop, I won't stop for anything You gotta roll like a freight train Gonna fly like a jet plane Coming through like a boomerang I won't stop for anything, no I'm coming through like a, a freight train, freight train A hurricane, a Mustang, a Mustang I won't stop, I won't stop anything, no, no I'm coming through, you better gotta do like A freight train, a freight train A Mustang, a freight train, a hurricane I won't stop for anything Well, well, well, well, well, well Yeah for anything yeah yeah yeah

Freight Train

ALAN JACKSON "Freight Train"
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.
