Reuben's Train

Reuben's Train

 Ol Reuben made a train & he put it on a track
 He ran it to the Lord knows where
 Oh me, oh my ran it to the Lord knows where

 Should been in town when Reuben's train went down
 You could hear that whistle blow 100 miles
 Oh me, oh my you could hear the whistle blow 100 miles

 Last night I lay in jail had no money to go my bail
 Lord how it sleeted & it snowed
 Oh me, oh my Lord how it sleeted & it snowed

 I've been to the East, I've been to the West
 I'm going where the chilly winds don't blow
 Oh me, oh my I'm going where the chilly winds don't blow

 Oh the train that I ride is 100 coaches long
 You can hear the whistle blow 100 miles
 Oh me, oh my you can hear the whistle blow 100 miles

I got myself a blade, laid Reuben in the shade,
I'm startin' me a graveyard of my own.
Oh, me, oh lordy my, startin' me a graveyard of my own.

 Repeat 1st verse
