Lyrics


So many roads

so many trains to ride

So many roads

so many trains to ride

I’ve got to find my baby

before I’ll be satisfied


I was standing at the station

when I heard that whistle blow

I was standing at the station

when I heard that whistle blow


You know I thought it was a streamline

but it was a B&O

Well you know i miss my baby

and i miss her by my side

yea, i miss my baby

i miss her by my side

you know know she always give me luvin'

that kept me satisfied……yeah


It was a mean old fireman

and a cruel old engineer

It was a mean old fireman

and a cruel old engineer

That took away my baby

whoa oh, left me standing here
