(Herman Parker/Sam Phillips)

Train arrive 16 coaches long
Train arrive 16 coaches long
Well that long black train
Took my baby back home

Train train rolling round the bend
Train train rolling round the bend
Well it took my baby
Away from me again

Went down to the station
To meet my baby at the gate
Ask the station master
If her train is running late
He said no if your wait
On that old 44
I hate to tell you son
But that train don't stop her anymore

Train train rolling round the bend
Train train rolling round the bend
Well it took my baby
Away from me again

Heard that whistle blowing
It was the middle of the night
When I got down to the station
The train was rolling out of site

Mystery train rolling round the bend
Mystery train rolling round the bend
Well it took my baby
Away from me again
