[Instrumental introduction 8 bars]

Well, the train passed by, aw, had my sweet baby inside
I said, the train passed by, aw with my sweet woman inside
And when I looked up and seen her, couldn’t help but hang my head and cry.

I said mmmm, wonder what’s going to become of me?
Mmmm, look at my baby wavin’ her hand
I guess I'll have to get me another woman, ‘cus she's gone back to her man.

Believe I'll beat the train to the track son, aw I'm gonna take my stand
Peoples, I'll beat the train to the track honey, aw I'm gonna stand right here
Aw I don't want to kill nobody but that fireman and engineer.

She gets her water at Fairmen, coal at th' 'bama mine
She gets her water at Fairmen, huh, coal at th' 'bama mine
And I would let everybody ride, people, b' you know the train ain't mine.

I said “Good morning conductor, aw let a broke man ride"
I said “Good morning conductor, aw please let a broke man ride"
All’s I wanna see my sick woman one more time before she die.

[Instrumental verse]

[Instrumental verse 8 bars]

Some time you hear me singin’ “Our Father kingdom come"
Some time you hear me singin’ “Our Father kingdom come"
Then again you hear me moanin’ “Lord let their will be done”.

[Outro 8 bars]

[Spoken] Listen women, you can't get to heaven triflin'
If I's you women, I wouldn't try.
