Freight Train Boogie Choo Choo Ch'boogie

Original and similar lyrics
(Griffin/Horton, Darling, Gabler) Casey Jones was a mighty man, 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. Woo woo, wah wah, woo woo, wah wah. Woo woo, wah wah, woo woo, wah wah. He made the freight train boogie as he rolled down the line. I'm headed for the station with my pack on my back, I'm tired of transportation in the back of a hack. I just love the rhythm of the clickity-clack, I hear the whistle blowing, see the smoke from the stack. And pal around with democratic fellas named Mac, Take me right back to the track, Jack. Choo choo, choo choo ch'boogie, woo woo, woo woo ch'boogie. Choo choo, choo choo ch'boogie, take me right back to the track, Jack. You reach your destination and alas and alack, You need some compensation to get back in the black. You take a morning paper from the top of the stack and read the situation from the front to the back. The only job that's open needs a man with a knack, take me right back to the track, Jack. Choo choo, choo choo ch'boogie, woo woo, woo woo ch'boogie. Choo choo, choo choo ch'boogie, take me right back to the track, Jack. Choo choo, choo choo ch'boogie, woo woo, woo woo ch'boogie. Choo choo, choo choo ch'boogie, He made the freight train boogie as he rolled down the line.

Big City Train

GWEN STEFANI "No Doubt"
Can you hear that whistle Loud clackety-clack It's calling me The station is where it's at It's coming again now Chuggin' down that track Just check your records Got all my bags packed You'll always find me waiting for that train to come through Come get me, take me, to the land where my dreams come true This time I'll board that train It won't be long Check the label on my baggage Destination in my song Talk to the conductor Saved up my fare Yakety-yak for a while CHOO CHOO! Chorus: Hurry grab my luggage Hurry grab my bags It seems the locomotive Has been taken another track A penny brought on by mischief A penny, a form of cash Has been placed upon the railway We are destined to be a smash!

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.

Lonesome Cowboy

CHRIS DE BURGH "Far Beyond These Castle Walls"
There was a lonesome cowboy, who rode his horse all day, At night he slept in the moonlight, till he heard that midnight train... And then that lonesome cowboy, looked up at the stars in the sky, I will leave my land and my horses, on that midnight train I will ride, To the city, far across the plains, To that city, on that midnight train, here it comes, Choo choo choo... on that midnight train And then that lonesome cowboy, stepped into a bar, A pretty girl slid over nice and easy, Boy your money won't go far. She took him outside to an alley, he got dragged into a fight, And a bullet sent him dying, and he cursed that moonless night In that city, far across the plains, In that city, he could hear that midnight train, down the line; Choo choo choo... he could hear that midnight train And now that lonesome cowboy is lain beneath the clay, His horses they're still waiting, for he is gone away; Now if you think the grass is greener on the far side of the hill All you cowboys, take it easy, there's no grass there at all. In that city, far across the plains, In that city, you'd better miss that midnight train, here it comes Choo choo choo... you'd better miss that midnight train Choo choo choo... that train is coming for you.

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.
