Freight Train

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’ve gone

when I die bury me deep
at the end of Chestnut Street
so I can see old Number Nine
as she goes rollin’ by

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’ve gone

when I’m dead and in my grave
no more good times will I crave
just place a stone at my head and feet
and tell ‘em all I’ve gone to sleep

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’ve gone
