Yeah, smokestack lightning
Don't you hear me callin'?
Don't you hear me callin'? Well, well

Tell me where did you go last night?
I gotta know who you been with
Tell me where did you go last night? Well, well

You gotta stop your train
Let me go for a ride, pretty baby, you know
Stop your train, I gotta ride with you
Gotta ride with you
I gotta ride with you

Fare you well, goodbye, pretty baby
Fare you well, goodbye, goodbye
I never see nobody little baby, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye

Yeah, smokestack lightning
Shining like gold
Don't you hear me callin'? Well, well

You gotta stop your train
Let me go for a ride, gotta ride with you
Stop your train and ride with you, now
