"Night Train to Memphis" as written by Owen Bradley, Beasley Smith and Marvin Hughes....
Take that night train to Memphis
Take that night train to Memphis
And when you arrive at the station
I'll be right there to meet you
I'll be right there to greet you
So don't turn down my invitation.

[Chorus]
Halle-lu-jah! (halle-lu-jah!)
Halle-lu-jah! (halle-lu-jah!)
We'll be shoutin' hallelu-jah all the day
Oh we'll have a jubilee
Down in Memphis, tennessee
And we'll shout halle-lu-jah all the way.

Take that night train to Memphis
Take that night train to Memphis
You know how I'm longin' to see you
Leave at three-fifty-seven; arrive at eleven
And I'll be shoutin' "halle-lu-jah!"

[Chorus]

Take that night train to Memphis
Take that night train to Memphis
Tell that engineer to pull the throttle open
Keep that engine stack a-smokin',
I'm not kiddin', I'm not jokin'
I'll soon be with my girl, I'm hopin'.

[Chorus]
