Blue Train
Johnny Cash

Blue Train

There's an engine at the station and the whistle blows my name,
It's callin' callin' callin', 'Come and get aboard the train.'
My baby's gone and I'm alone to live in misery,
I'm gonna call and make a reservation for me.

Gonna ride the blue train, gonna ride the blue train.
Gonna ride the blue train, gonna ride the blue train.

I'm gonna climb aboard and ride until I learn to smile,
I'll be knockin' out the blues while I'm knockin' out the miles.
With my guitar, beat and rythm, to the click-clack of the wheels
I'm gonna sing the blues 'cause that's the way that I feel.

Gonna ride the blue train, gonna ride the blue train.
Gonna ride the blue train, gonna ride the blue train.

Conductor, go and tell the man to shovel on the coal
It doesn't seem half as bad as long as I can roll.
Give me another ticket and I'll stay and ride with you.
There's nothing left to live for in this world we're rollin' through.

Gonna ride the blue train, gonna ride the blue train.
Gonna ride the blue train, gonna ride the blue train.
