Lyrics

Black train coming                                                                                                                   
It won’t come for me                                                                                                                                     
Black train coming                                                                                                                   
It won’t come for me                                                                                                                                     
The wolves are at my door                                                                                                 
Got the devil by my side                                                                                                      
If I see that train                                                                                                                      
I’m gonna run and hide                                                                                                        
Black train coming                                                                                                                   
But it won’t come for me                                                                                                                                                                           
 
Black train coming                                                                                                                   
Coming around the bend                                                                                                                             
Black train coming                                                                                                                   
Coming around the bend                                                                                                                             
This world’s as sweet as honey                                                                                         
I don’t want to die                                                                                                                  
I can’t live forever                                                                                                                  
But I’m surely gonna try                                                                                                       
Black train coming                                                                                                                   
But it won’t come for me                                                                                                                                                                           
 
Black train coming                                                                                                                   
Hear that lonesome whistle blow                                                                                                             
Black train coming                                                                                                                   
Hear that lonesome whistle blow                                                                                                             
If you want to get to heaven                                                                                             
Got to hit your knees and pray                                                                                         
I’ll take my baby’s loving                                                                                                      
Over heaven any day                                                                                                            
Black train coming                                                                                                                   
But it won’t come for me                                                                                                                                                                           
 
Black train coming                                                                                                                   
Pass that whiskey bottle ‘round                                                                                                                
Black train coming                                                                                                                   
Pass that whiskey bottle ‘round                                                                                                                
When you get to heaven                                                                                                     
The streets are paved with gold                                                                                       
But if there ain’t no whiskey                                                                                              
Then heaven’s too damn cold                                                                                           
Black train coming                                                                                                                   
But it won’t come for me
