Trying to stay clear of the St. Louie jail
Strumming to the rhythm of an old freight train
Ol' St. Louis where I played my game
Ain't no doubt about it,
ahead
There's thatta old freight train 
Now the legend, Casey Jones was his name 

Clickety-clack, clickety-clack 
Over the rails he'd go
Tulare dust in a farm boy's nose
Wondering where the freight train goes
Standin' in the field by the railroad track 
Cursin' this strap on my
and the devil's gonna make u choose

And just like a cold wind blowin' can u feel me comin' for u
Just like a freight train rollin' packed tight full of rhythm
and the devil's gonna make you choose

And just like a cold wind blowin' can you feel me comin' for you
Just like a freight train rollin' packed tight full

He's got a beautiful home, all of his own
It's the yodeler's

I want to go home, I want to go home
Oh, how I want to go home.

night I make the bars
If only they could read between the lines

And after all these years I
could read between the lines!

You know,

You know,
I rode a freight train

Half way home, we'll be there by morning
Through the Mississippi darkness
Rolling down to the sea
And all the towns and people seem
To fade

‘cause you know I rode a freight train north to Detroit City
And after all these years I find I've just been
along the southbound odyssey the train pulls out of Kankakee
Rolls along past houses, farms & fields
Passin' graves that have no name, freight yards
night I make the bars
If only they could read between the lines
You know I rode the freight train north to Detroit City
And after all these years I
