Drivin' that train, high on cocaine

Trouble ahead, trouble behind
And you know that notion just crossed my mind

Drivin' that train, high on cocaine

Trouble ahead, trouble behind
And you know that notion just crossed my mind

Trouble with you is the trouble with me
Got two good eyes but we still don't see
Come 'round the bend, you know it's the end
The fireman screams and the engine just gleams
