Memphis Special

print

I’m riding on that Memphis Special
I’m riding on that Memphis Train
I’m on my way to see my darlin
That I won’t ever meet again

That whistle used to make me lonesome
But now it seems to sing a song
It’s singin’ ’bout my blue eyed darlin (trio from ’bout)
And how she’s waiting for so long

Please engineer open the throttle
Fireman shovel on the coal
And when that boarder hollers “Memphis”
Her smiling face I’ll see once more

I’m riding on that Memphis Specia
I’m riding on that Memphis Train
I’m on my way to see my darlin
That I won’t ever meet again
