Freight Train  

			T: Paul James & Fred Williams
 
Freight train, freight train, goin' so fast 
freight train, freight train, goin' so fast. 
Please don't tell them which train I'm on, 
'cos they'll know just where I've gone. 
  
Is there noone to hold my hand, 
help me over rock and sand. 
Just one place is safe for me, 
the desert where I'm free. 
 
Freight train, freight train, goin' so fast 
Freight train, freight train, goin' so fast 
I wanna' hear old number nine, 
as she goes whislin' by 
 
Lost my reason, lost my wife, 
killed my friend in mortal strife. 
Now I must keep movin' on, 
They'll not know where I'm gone. 
 
Freight train, freight train, goin' so fast 
Freight train, freight train, goin' so fast 
Take me back where I was born, 
so I won't feel forlorn. 
 
When I die just bury me please, 
way down near old chesnut trees. 
Poplars at my head and feet, 
just say i've gone to sleep. 
 
Freight train, freight train, goin' so fast 
Freight train, freight train, goin' so fast 
Please don't tell them which train I'm on, 
'cos they'll know where I've gone. 

Don't know where I'm headin' for, 
what I've done is 'gainst the law. 
Got no future, got no hope, 
just notnin' but the rope.
