Veirs, Laura - Freight Train Lyrics




Freight train, freight train, run so fast
Freight train, freight train, run so fast
Please don't tell what train I'm on
They won't know what route I've gone

When I am dead and in my grave
No more good times here I crave
Place the stones at my head and feet
And tell them all that I've gone to sleep

When I die, Lord, bury me deep
Way down on old Chestnut street
So I can hear old Number nine
As she goes rolling by

When I die, Lord, bury me deep
Way down on old Chestnut street
Place the stones at my head and feet
And tell them all that I've gone to sleep

    Could someone tell Daniel that this song was written by a woman, Elizabeth Cotten. And also, that there is this thing called the internet where you can look stuff up so you don't have to talk without knowing anything.
