Orange Blossom Special
The Wabash Cannonball
The Chattanooga Choo-Choo
This hobo's seen 'em all

I've watched the Sante Fe
Lay her smoke against the sky
And listen to old number three rollin'
Through the night

Ride the train, ride the train
Anywhere I'm going I ride trains
Sleepin' in a boxcar when it rains
Ride the train, ride the train

Southern Pacific
The Overland Express
And up ahead the coal cars of West
Virginia's best

And Oklahoma's Frisco
The biggest one of all
I've listened to the Silver Steed's
Lonesome midnight call

Ride the train, ride the train
Anywhere I'm going I ride trains
Sleepin' in a boxcar when it rains
Ride the train, ride the train

Ride the train
Trains
