John Fogerty – Big Train lyrics

When I was young, I spent my summer days playin' on the track.
The sound of the wheels rollin' on the steel took me out, took me back.

Big train from memphis, big train from memphis,
Now it's gone gone gone, gone gone gone.

Like no one before, he let out a roar, and I just had to tag along.
Each night I went to bed with the sound in my head, and the dream was a song.


Well I've rode 'em in and back out again - you know what they say about trains;
But I'm tellin' you when that memphis train came through,
This ol' world was not the same.
