Lyrics

1. I hate to hear that freight train blow whoo whoo!
I hate to hear that freight train blow whoo whoo!
Ev’ry time I hear it blowin’, I feel like ridin’ too.

2. I asked the brakeman to let me ride the blind,
Yes, I asked the brakeman to let me ride the blind.
He sad: “Little girlie, you know this train ain’t mine.”

3. That’s a mean old fireman, cruel old engineer,
mean old fireman, cruel old engineer,
it was mean old train that took my man away from here.

4. I’ve got the freight train blues, but I’m too darn mean to cry,
I’ve got the freight train blues, too darn mean to cry,
I’m gonna love that man till the day he dies.
