"Mile Long Train" as written by and Taylor Nelson....
Wagon train, mile-long train
Four hundred mules, six hundred men
They didn't know the devil was in
This mile-long train, wagon train

A man in black, no one knew his name
He was a devil for sure, leading that train
He said all you miners, mule-skinners too
Fifteen days I'll save for you
You see that plain, those mountains there
I'll take you across, ha ha ha, if you dare

Wagon train, mile-long train
Four hundred mules, six hundred men
They didn't know the devil was in
This mile-long train, wagon train (hee-yah!)

Now the only way out was the way they came in
And the shifting sand covered tracks where they've been
So one by one, they all died of thirst
And the the devil just laughed, at his mile-long hearse

That's where the name
Death Valley began
For there's no way out and only one way in

Wagon train, mile-long train
Four hundred mules, six hundred men
They didn't know the devil was in
This mile-long train, wagon train (hee-yah!)
Mile-long train, wagon train (hee-yah!)
