Hank Snow – Crazy Engineer lyrics
The black smoke stack was barking the steam made them pistons groan
And behind that screaming whistle you could hear that engine moan
The train was reeling and rocking the passangers were screaming with fear
For the train was being driven by a crazy engineer.
I'm driving this engine up to the moon
He laughed as the train sped on
Then from the lips of the mad man came
A crazy railroad song.
--- Instrumental ---
Then out from the blind crept Hobo Bill he was stealing a ride that day
I've rode the blinds on many a train they never traveled this way
He climbed over the bend into the engine cab those passangers lives to save
Then while he fought with the mad man his weary life he gave.
(Poor Bill spoke in a whisper
This was all they could hear)
I've rode my last railroad ride
With a crazy engineer...
