Freight Train
Elizabeth Cotton*

  Freight train, freight train run so fast
  Freight train, freight train run so fast
  Please don’t tell what train I’m on
  They would know what route I’m gone

When I’m gone and in my grave
No more good time here I crave
Lay the stone at my head and feet
Tell’em all that I’m gone to sleep

When I die please bury me deep
Way down on ol’ Chesnut Street
I can hear ol’ number nine
When she comes rolling by
