It's a long cold train that my babe,
She put me on
Why did you put me on babe
Why did you put me on
I'm a million miles from nowhere
And I don't know how long I've been gone
Why did you put me on babe
Why did you put me on
I count so many ties baby
Up and down this track
My mind is blowing cold
Sun is turning black
I've forgotten where I've been
I don't believe that I'm ever going back
The blue sky it is dripping into a sea of molten lead
My baby at the station
I remember what she said
There's gonna be a tomorrow daddy
please don't lose your head
Why did you put me on babe
Why did you put me on

Wail it is rising and sinking in my ear
It is growing louder, nobody else can hear
A mad dog's howl, whistle, shriek of the laughing engineer
Why did you put me on babe
Why did you put me on
