[G]Oh, listen to the train coming down the line,

trying to make up [C]all of her lost time,

from Buff[G]alooo...[D] to  Washing[G]ton.

[G]You can wash my jumper starch my overalls,

catch the train [C]they call the Cannonball,

from Buff[G]alooo...[D] to  Washing[G]ton.

[G]My baby's left me, she even took my shoes,

enough to give a man these [C] doggone worried blues,

she's [G]gone...  [D] she's solid [G] gone.


[G]Yonder comes the train coming down the track,

carry me away, but it [C]ain’t gonna carry me back,

my honey [G]babe...[D]  my blue eyed [G] babe.


[G] I'm going up north, I'm going up north this fall,

if luck don't change [C] I won’t be back at all,

my honey [G]babe....  [D] I'm leaving  [G] you.
