Freight train, freight train
Going so fast
Freight train, freight train
Going so fast
I don't know what train he's on
Won't you tell me where he's gone

Don't know where he's heading for
What he's done against the law
Got no future, got no hope
Just nothing but the rope

[Repeat CHORUS]

He lost his reason, lost his life
He killed his friend in mortal strife
He must have moved
Like the rolling skies
Just a-waiting 'til he dies

[Repeat CHORUS]

When he dies, just bury him please
Way down the end of old Chestnut Street
Poplars at his head and feet
And tell them he's gone to sleep

[Repeat CHORUS]
