Hank Williams – Devil's Train lyrics

The Devil's Train is long and black
It rides on rails of fear
It's headin' for destruction now
With a drunken engineer


Oh, see the greatness of the crowd
That waits beside the track
They're leavin' on that Devil's Train
And never comin' back

Oh Lord, please stop that terrible train
Before it is too late
And teach them how to bow their heads
Before they seal their fate

The Devil's Train will take you
To a land of groans and pain
You'll spend your days in sorrow
If you ride that Devil's Train

Oh, listen to that whistle scream
Like echoes from the blue
The blood is white and spouting steam
She's on her way to doom

Oh Lord, please stop that terrible train
Before it is too late
And teach them how to bow their heads
Before they seal their fate

The Devil's Train is long and black
It's beautiful to see
It offers you temptation
But it gives you misery

So come and ride that glorious train
Where happiness is free
It's on its way to heaven now
To spend eternity

Oh Lord, please stop that terrible train
Before it is too late
And teach them how to bow their heads
Before they seal their fate
