"Mystery Train" as written by Herman Parker Jr. and Sam Phillips....
Train arrived, 16 coaches long
Train arrived, 16 coaches long
Well that long, black train, got my baby and gone

Train train, rollin' round the bend
Train train, rollin' round the bend
Well it took my baby 'way from me again

Come down to the station, meet my baby at the gate
Asked the station master if that train is runnin' late
He said - if you're waitin' on the 444
I hate to tell you son, (that) train don't stop here anymore

Train arrived, comin' down the line
Train arrived, comin' down the line
Well it took my baby, left poor me behind

Heard the whistle blow, it was the middle of the night
When I got down to the station, train was pullin' outta sight

Mystery train, smokin' down the track
Mystery train, smokin' down the track
Well, I don't want no ride, just bring my baby back
