Randy Newman – Gone Dead Train lyrics

My engine pumpin' steam
And I was grindin' at you hard and fast
I was burnin' down the rails to heat the way
Haulin' ass and ridin' up the track

And I laughed at the conductor
Who was tellin' me my coal would never last

When the fire in my boiler
Up and quit before I came
There ain't no empty cellar
Need a gone dead train

Once was at a time when I could mama shave 'em dry
And raise a fever ice-down chill
Waitin' at the station with a heavy loaded sack
Savin' up and holdin' just to spill

Shootin' my supply through my demon's eye
Instead of holdin' my time, I hope I will

When the fire in my boiler
Up and quit before I came
There ain't no empty cellar
Need a gone dead train

Yes, it's a gone dead train
Got to help it to burn
You know it's a gone dead train
You got to teach it to learn

There ain't no easy way
When your daily run a downhill pull
And there ain't no easy day
Wishin' for some jelly roll

There ain't no switch been made
To make your juicy lemon find
A spring to run a dry well full

When the fire in my boiler
Up and quit before I came
Ain't no empty cellar
Need a gone dead train

Yes, it's a gone dead train
Got to help it to burn
You know it's a gone dead train
You got to teach it to learn

You know it's a gone dead train
Got to help it to burn
You know it's a gone dead train
You got to help it to learn

Baby, it's a gone dead train
Yes, it's a gone dead train
