INTRO

I. C. is a fast train, it done brought me straight on through
I. C. is a fast train, it done brought me straight on through
From Mississippi to Chicago, just to bring my love to you

My babe's in Detroit, Michigan, they tell me that's a murder's home
My babe's in Detroit, Michigan, they tell me that's a murder's home
I don't care if there's nineteen graveyards, I'm goin' up there 'fore long

I. C.'s a fast train, takin' water and coal on the fly
I. C.'s a fast train, takin' water and coal on the fly
If you want to ride that train, it might was to wave her bye-bye-bye

SOLO (Spoken: Play 'em, Peetie, play 'em. Play 'em all you want. Sure got the blues about my baby. If I've been a bad fella, I. C. made me do it, boy.)

Number fifty-four seventy on the I. C., takin' water and coal on the fly
Number fifty-four seventy on the I. C., takes coal and water on the fly
I had to kiss my woman, and I waved her bye-bye-bye

I'm gonna sing these I. C. blues, ain't gonna sing these blues no more
Gonna sing these I. C. blues, ain't gon' sing these blues no more
Number fifty-four seventy on the I. C., my mind is made out to go
