"Blue Train" as written by and Rosanne Cash....
There's an engine at the station and the whistle calls my name,
It's callin' callin' callin', 'Come and get aboard the train.'
My baby's gone and I'm alone to live in misery,
I'm gonna call and make a reservation for me.

Gonna ride a blue train, gonna ride a blue train.
Gonna ride a blue train, gonna ride a blue train.

I'm gonna climb aboard and ride until I learn to smile,
I'll be knockin' out the blues while I'm knockin' out the miles.
With my guitar, beat and rhythm, to the click-clack of the wheels
I'm gonna sing the blues 'cause that's the way that I feel.

Gonna ride a blue train, gonna ride a blue train.
Gonna ride a blue train, gonna ride a blue train.

Conductor, go and tell the man to shovel on the coal
It doesn't seem half as bad as long as I can roll.
Give me another ticket and I'll stay and ride with you.
There's nothing left to live for in this world we're rollin' through.

Gonna ride a blue train, gonna ride a blue train.
Gonna ride a blue train, gonna ride a blue train.
