  • Oh, here it comes

    Well, train, train, take me on out of this town
    Train, train, Lord, take me on out of this town
    Well, that woman I'm in love with, Lord, she's Memphis bound

    Well, leavin' here, I'm just a raggedy hobo
    Lord, I'm leaving here, I'm just a raggedy hobo
    Well, that woman I'm in love with, Lord, she's got to go

    Well, goodbye pretty mama, get yourself a money man
    Goodbye, pretty mama, Lord, get yourself a money man
    You take that midnight train to Memphis
    Lord, leave me if you can
    Oh, take that midnight train to Memphis
    Lord, leave me if you can
    Oh, take that train, baby Writer/s: SHORTY MEDLOCKE

  • Jim Drumm from Grafton, NyHow does this song compare to The Band's "Mystery Train"? The lyrics and melody are the same.
  • Michelle from Wausau Wi I saw these guys in 1985 when I was only 16 years old and they were a great bunch of guys !
    Even though there are no original members left I will be seeing the new members on August 13 the at Q and Z in Ringle Wisconsin ! This should be interesting.
  • Jason from Aurora, CoEvery time I play this song the dog howls to the harmonica in the beginning.
  • Laurent from Manama, BahrainBest Southern Rock band ever. Medlocke not singing in Lynyrd Skynyrd is a waste of talent! "Train Train" is a great live song.
  • Joann from Portsmouth, VaAlways liked Blackfoot, along with 38 Special, wish Highway Song was on the list cause I would like to hear that 1 also. Also like Molly Hatchett, their music is all similar.
