Oh listen to the train
Comin’ down the line
Tryin’ to make up all of her lost time
From Buffalo to Washington

I'm gonna wash my jumper
Starch my overalls
Catch a train they call a cannonball
From Buffalo to Washington

My baby left me
He even took my shoes
Enough to give a gal the shotgun worried blues
He's a gun
Just solid gone

I'm goin’ up north
I'm goin’ up this far
If love don't change I won't be back at all
My honey babe
My brown-eyed bear

Oh listen to the train comin’ down the track
Carry me away but it ain't gonna carry me back
My honey babe
I'm leavin’ you
