My heart is filled with pain
I believe I'll take the train
My heart is filled with pain
I believe I'll take the train
The one I love
She has another man

Yon' come the train
And I got no change
Yon' come the train
An I got no change
All I can do
Just stand an wring my hands

I don't feel ashamed
Standin' and wringin' my hands
At the train
I don't feel ashamed
Standin' and wringin' my hands
At the train
I ain't the first man
The train, left cold in hand

Now, the same big black train
That put me in a strain
That the same big black train
That put me in a strain
I ride the train
Keep the women from spendin' my change

I don't see nothin'
But hasten another train
I don't see nothin'
But hasten another train
That the same black train
That left me in a strain.

(guitar & washboard to end)
