Rusty Draper – Freight Train lyrics

Freight train, freight train, going so fast
Freight train, freight train, going so fast
I don't know care what train I'm on
As long as it keeps rolling on

Don't know where I'm headed for
Makes no difference anymore
Got no future, got no hope
Can't do nothing now but roam


When my baby left my side
Something deep inside me died
Got to keep a-moving on
Til the memory of her is gone


When I die, just bury me please
Way down the end of old Chestnut Street
Poplars at my head and feet
And tell her that I've gone to sleep
