Freight train

by Elizabeth Cotten

Chorus:
Freight train, freight train, run so fast
Freight train, freight train, run so fast
You don’t care what train you‘re on
As long as it keeps rolling on.

1)
Don’t know where I’m headed for
makes no difference anymore
I don’t care what train I‘m on
As long as it keeps rolling on.

Chorus

2)
When my baby left my side
Something deep inside me died
Gotta keep a-moving on
No memory of her is gone.

3)
When I die, oh bury me deep
Way down on old Chestnut Street
That I can hear old Number Nine
As she comes rolling by.

Chorus 2:
Freight train, freight train, run so fast
Freight train, freight train, run so fast
Please don't tell what train I'm on
They won't know what route I've gone (3x)
