Train Song

Lyrics: Robert Hunter
Music: Robert Hunter

A fragment sung by Robert Hunter at a recording session with David Nelson and some members of the Grateful Dead in summer 1969.

[cuts in]
It's a [hidden spin]
So you can hear the whistle scream

Sometimes when that train
Goes rolling by
Sometimes when that train
Goes rolling by
And it don't take you
It makes you want to cry

If you tell your baby goodbye
You know you just gonna make her cry
You catch that train tonight
You'll be gone by the morning light

Sometimes when that train
Goes rolling by
Sometimes when that train
Goes rolling by
And it don't take you
It makes you want to cry
