I pulled into Memphis, thirteen minutes early
First time in two weeks.
That’s where she came to meet me
As I stepped down off 451, and needed sleep.

And the baby’s overdo I know, she needs some thi..ngs,
But the more we discuss it, it’s the same..
Long train rollin’, got a feelin’ that I’m not knowin’
She’s not waitin’ for me.
These rails keep getting’ longer
And this feelin’s getting’ stronger she won’t let me be,
I love my woman fire and rain,
But, I won’t give up my train
The Baby came in April and I was in Chicago
In the pourin’ rain.
With twelve flat cars, an empty tanker, three box cars
and an empty sack of mail.
Tho’ I get lonely sometimes I know
There’s just no other way to explain…
