Big Train From Memphis

When I was young I spent my summer days
playing on the track.
The sound of the wheels rolling on the steel
took me out took me back

   Big train from Memphis
   Big train from Memphis
   now it’s gone gone gone
   gone gone gone

Like no one before he let out a roar
and I just had to tag along
each night I went to bed with the sounds in my head
and the dream was the song

Well I rode ’em in and back out again
and you know what they say about trains
But I’m tellin you when that Memphis train came through
this old world was not the same
