"Big Train" as written by and Fogerty....
When I was young,
I spent my summer days
Playin' on the track.
The sound of the wheels rollin'
On the steel took me out, took me back.

[Chorus]
Big Train from Memphis,
Big Train from Memphis,
Now it's gone gone gone, gone gone gone.

Like no one before,
He let out a roar,
And I just had to tag along.
Each night I went to bed
With the sound in my head,
And the dream was a song.

[Chorus]

Well I've rode 'em in
And back out again
You know what they say about trains;
But I'm tellin' you when
That Memphis train came through,
This ol' world was not the same.

[Chorus]
