Transcribed by Alan Bataille



    


Levon's drums mimic the chugging of a steam engine




    


Verse 1
E       A                    E

Train I ride sixteen coaches long
E       A                    E

Train I ride sixteen coaches long
          B7               A               E

Well that long black train got my baby and gone


Chorus
E     A                         E

Train train  rollin' around the bend
E     A                         E

Train train, rollin' around the bend
        B7           A             E

Well it took my baby away from me again


Verse 2
E

I come down to the station meet my baby at the gate
E

Asked the station master if the train's runnin' late
E

He said it's still a-waitin' on the four forty four
E

I hate to tell you son that train don't stop here anymore


Chorus
E     A                             E

Train train  rollin' down  down the line
E     A                       E

Train train  rollin' down the line
E       B7                              E

Well it took my baby and left poor me behind


Instrumental (mimics chorus)
E     A                             E

E     A                             E

E       B7        A                     E


Bridge
E

Heard that whistle blowin' was the middle of the night
E

When I got down to the station the train was pullin' out of sight


Chorus
E       A                       E

Mystery train  smokin' down the track
E       A                       E

Mystery train  smokin' down the track
       B7                  A                  E

Well I don't want no ride  just bring my baby back


Instrumental Outtake

Long jam on E to the end
