"Freight Train" as written by and Fred Mcdowell....
Freight Train, freight train
run, so fast
freight train, freight train
down the track
Please don't say
what train I'm on
They won't know
what ground
I've gone
When I'm dead and
in my grave
No more good times
left to crave
put a stone at my
head and feet
and tell them all
I've gone to sleep.

When I'm dead
Lord, bury me deep
down the long, old
Chesnut street
Then I hear old
number nine
as it goes rollin' on by

Freight Train, freight train
run, so fast
freight train, freight train
down the track
Please don't say
what train I'm on
They won't know
what ground
I've gone

Freight Train, freight train
run, so fast
freight train, freight train
down the track
put a stone at my
head and feet
and tell them all
I've gone to sleep.
