"Train" as written by Bradley Kirk Arnold, Matthew Darrick Roberts, Christopher Lee Henderson and Robert Todd Harrell....
Put me on the train mama
'Cause things just ain't the same no more
Put me on the train mama
I'm leavin' today

Well I don't want to watch the world spinnin'
I want to be spinning with it
Put me on the train mama
I'm leavin' today

'Cause I've got the feeling that's for sure
And to know that I can get it makes me want it more
Mama I just want you to know that I'm gonna be fine

Lord I know it's a chance that I take
But I know you'll forgive the mistakes that I make
There's a life out there and it's gonna be mine

Put me on the train mama
'Cause I can't take this pain no more
Put me on the train mama
Well I'm leaving today

And there's a world that's out there waitin'
And I know that it's a chance I'm takin'
Put me on the train mama
I'm leaving today

'Cause I've got the feeling that's for sure
And to know that I can get it makes me want it more
Mama I just want you to know that I'm gonna be fine

Lord I know it's a chance that I take
But I know you'll forgive the mistakes that I make
There's a life out there oh, it's gonna be mine

God knows how long I'll be gone
But maybe one day the train will bring me home

Put me on the train mama
Oh put me on the train mama
Put me on the train mama
I'm leaving today

'Cause I've got the feeling that's for sure
And to know that I can get it makes me want it more
Mama I just want you to know that I'm gonna be fine

Lord I know it's a chance that I take
But I know you'll forgive the mistakes that I make
There's a life out there oh, and it's gonna be mine

Oh put me on a train mama
'Cause I'm leavin' today

    General Commentno comments for this great song?
    well, I just bought the Album today, and I really like it.

    and to the meaning...
    I think this song is about growing up and making his own experience. He also talks about and leaving the home-town ("Put me on a train momma | I’m leaving today | There’s a world that’s out there waiting ), because he feels sick there.

    Well, thats just my point of view, but I think its quite ok.

    General CommentI also think its about him leaving to go forth into the world.

    And Sandra, you're anglish was quite good. Only thing is we would say "sorry for my bad english." instead of worse.

    General CommentI agree with sandra, but on the other hand my first impression was a little different and i kinda like to think of this first impression as the real interpretation cause there's a little bit more meaning behind it (at least to me). My first impression was that he (whoever the singer/narrator/artist is) is tired of life as he knows it and wants more outta life so he's joining the military, or possibly some other organized government funded agency, to better himself and serve others. With lyrics like "I know there's a world out there waiting" that may be serving others and "Lord i know it's a chance i'm taking"..
    this interpretation makes lines like "i know i can make it and only want it more" a little easier to understand along with "i know u'll forgive the mistakes i make", cause with this interpretation he's better himself.. however, there's no direct indication that it's military he's pursuing and leaves it quite open for altercation and controversy..i do not know enough about the band's history to know that..
