"Glendale Train" as written by and John C Dawson....
WELL SOMEBODY ROBBED THE GLENDALE TRAIN
THIS MORNIN? AT HALF-PAST NINE
SOMEBODY ROBBED THE GLENDALE TRAIN
AND I SWEAR I ain't LYIN?
THEY MADE CLEAN OFF WITH SIXTEEN G?S
AND LEFT TWO MEN LYING COLD
SOMEBODY ROBBED THE GLENDALE TRAIN
AND THEY MADE OFF WITH THE GOLD

NOW CHARLIE JONES WAS THE ENGINEER
HE HAD TWENTY YEARS ON THE LINE
HE KISSED HIS WIFE AT THE STATION GATE
THIS MORNING AT SIX THIRTY-FIVE
NOW EVERYTHING WENT FINE ?TIL HALF PAST-NINE
THEN CHARLIE LOOKED UP AND HE SAW
THERE WAS MEN ON HORSES, MEN WITH GUNS
AND NO SIGN OF THE LAW

AND SOMEBODY ROBBED THE GLENDALE TRAIN
THIS MORNIN? AT HALF-PAST NINE
SOMEBODY ROBBED THE GLENDALE TRAIN
AND I SWEAR I ain't LYIN?
THEY MADE CLEAN OFF WITH SIXTEEN G?S
AND LEFT TWO MEN LYING COLD
SOMEBODY ROBBED THE GLENDALE TRAIN
AND THEY MADE OFF WITH THE GOLD

AMOS WHITE WAS THE BAGGAGE MAN
AND HE DEARLY LOVED HIS JOB
THE COMPANY, THEY REWARDED HIM
WITH A GOLDEN WATCH AND FOB
WELL, AMOS HE WAS A? MARKIN? TIME
WHEN THE DOOR BLEW OFF HIS CAR
THEY FOUND AMOS WHITE IN FIFTEEN PIECES,
FIFTEEN MILES APART

AND SOMEBODY ROBBED THE GLENDALE TRAIN
THIS MORNIN? AT HALF-PAST NINE
SOMEBODY ROBBED THE GLENDALE TRAIN
AND I SWEAR I ain't LYIN?
THEY MADE CLEAN OFF WITH SIXTEEN G?S
AND LEFT TWO MEN LYING COLD
SOMEBODY ROBBED THE GLENDALE TRAIN
AND THEY MADE OFF WITH THE GOLD
I SAID SOMEBODY ROBBED THE GLENDALE TRAIN
AND THEY MADE OFF WITH THE GOLD
