"Mystery Train" as written by Herman Parker Jr. and Sam Phillips....
Train arrive, it's sixteen coaches long
Train arrive, it's sixteen coaches long
Well, that long black train take my baby and gone

Mystery train, rollin' down the track
Mystery train, rollin' down the track
Well, it took my baby, people it won't be coming back

Train, train, rollin' 'round the bend
Train, train, rollin' 'round the bend
Well, it took my baby, people it won't be back again

Train arrive, it's sixteen coaches long
Train arrive, it's sixteen coaches long
Well, that long black train take my baby and gone

    General CommentThe artist who did this song is really Paul Butterfield backed by The Band in the movie "The Last Waltz" in 1972.

    However Elvis had the original hit in 1956.
