"Mystery Train" as written by Herman Parker Jr. and Sam Phillips....
Train arrive
Sixteen coaches long
Train arrive
Sixteen coaches long
Well that long black train
Got my baby and gone

Train, train
Rolling around the bend
Train, train
Rolling around the bend
Well, it took my baby
Away from me again

Come down to the station
Meet my baby at the gate
Asked the station master
If the train's running late
He said "if you're a-waiting
On the 444
I hate to tell you, son
That train don't stop here anymore"

Train, train, rolling down, down the line
Train, train rolling down the line
Well, it took my baby
And left poor me behind

Heard that whistle blowing
It was the middle of the night
When I got down to the station
The train was pulling out of sight

Mystery train smoking down the track
Mystery train smoking down the track
Well I don't want no ride
Just bring my baby back

    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.
