|Freight train freight train goin' so fast|
Freight train freight train goin' so fast
Please, don't tell what train I'm on,
so they won't know where I'm gone
When I die, Lord, please bury me deep
way down on old Chestnut Street
So I can hear old Number Nine
as she comes a-rolling by
Freight train, freight train...
When I'm dead and in my grave
no more good times here I'll crave
place the stones at my head and feet
and tell them all that I'm gone to sleep
Freight train, freight train ...
