There's an engine at the station and the whistle blows my name It's callin' callin' callin' come and get aboard the train My baby's gone and I'm alone to live in misery I'm gonna call and make a reservation for me
Gonna ride the blue train gonna ride a blue train Gonna ride the blue train gonna ride a blue train
I'm gonna climb aboard and ride and until I learn to smile I'll be knockin' out the blues while I'm knockin' out the miles With my guitar beatin' rhythm to the click-clack of the wheels I'm gonna sing the blues cause that's the way that I feel
Gonna ride the blue train...
Conductor go and tell the man to shovel on the coal It doesn't seem as half as bad as long as I can roll Give me another ticket and I'll stay and ride with you There's nothing left to live for in the world we're rollin' through
