Freight Train

Elizabeth Cotten

4:4 Key:F

[F]Freight train, freight train, [C7]goin' so fast,
[C]freight train, freight train, [F]goin' so fast
[A7]Please don't tell what [Bb]train I'm on,
so they [F]won't know [C7]where I'm [F]gone.

[F]Freight train, freight train, [C7]goin' round the bend,
[C]freight train, freight train, [F]comin' back again
[A7]One of these days turn that [Bb]train around,
and go [F]back to [C7]my home [F]town.

[F]One more place [C7]I'd like to be,
[C]one more place [F]I'd like to see
To [A7]watch them old Blue Ridge [Bb]Mountains climb,
when I [F]ride old [C7]Number [F]Nine.

[F]When I die Lord, [C7]bury me deep,
[C]down at the end of [F]Chestnut Street
[A7]Where I can hear old [Bb]Number Nine,
as [F]she comes on [C7]down the [F]line.

[F]Freight train, freight train, [C7]goin' so fast,
[C]freight train, freight train, [F]goin' so fast
[A7]Please don't tell what [Bb]train I'm on,
so they [F]won't know [C7]where I'm [F]gone.
