The Train that Carried My Girl From Town

The Train that Carried My Girl From Town

Where were you when the train left town?
I's standin' on the corner with my head hung down,
Hey, that train, done carried my girl from town,
Hey-ey, yeh, hey, yeh.

I wish to the Lord that train would wreck,
Kill the engineer and break the fireman's neck,
Hey, that train, done carried my girl from town,
Hey-ey, yeh, hey, yeh.

Rations on the table, coffee's gettin' cold,
Some dirty rounder stole my jellyroll,
Hey, that train, done carried my girl from town,
Hey-ey, yeh, hey, yeh.

There goes my girl, somebody bring her back,
'Cause she's got her hand in my money sack,
Hey, that train, done carried my girl from town,
Hey-ey, yeh, hey, yeh.

SPOKEN    Ah, she's rollin' on down the line now.

Ashes to ashes and dust to dust,
Lord show me the woman that a man can trust,
Hey, that train, done carried my girl from town,
Hey-ey, yeh, hey, yeh.

SPOKEN    Enough to make a man lonely.  Oh, yeh!.
This is the way she sounded when she went outa hearin'.
