THE TRAIN THAT CARRIED MY GIRL FROM TOWN

TRADITIONAL

WHERE WERE YOU WHEN THAT TRAIN LEFT TOWN
I WAS STANDING ON THE CORNER WITH MY HEAD HUNG DOWN
HEY THAT TRAIN THAT CARRIED MY GIRL FROM TOWN
HEY, HEY, HEY, HEY

I WISH TO THE LORD THAT THE TRAIN WOULD WRECK
KILL THE ENGINEER AND BREAK THE FIREMAN'S NECK
HEY THAT TRAIN THAT CARRIED MY GIRL FROM TOWN
HEY, HEY, HEY, HEY

RATIONS ON THE TABLE, COFFEE'S GETTIN' COLD
SOME DIRTY ROUNDER STOLE MY JELLY ROLL
HEY THAT TRAIN THAT CARRIED MY GIRL FROM TOWN
HEY, HEY, HEY, HEY

ASHES TO ASHES AND DUST TO DUST
SHOW ME A ROUNDER THAT A MAN CAN TRUST
HEY THAT TRAIN THAT CARRIED MY GIRL FROM TOWN
HEY, HEY, HEY, HEY
