[C] Freight train, freight train, [G7] goin' so fast,
[G7] freight train, freight train, [C] goin' so fast
[E7] Please don't tell what [F] train I'm on,
so they [C] won't know [G7] where I'm [C] gone.

[C] Freight train, freight train, [G7] goin' round the bend,
[G7] freight train, freight train, [C] comin' back again
[E7] One of these days turn that [F] train around,
and go [C] back to [G7] my home [C] town.

[C] One more place I'd [G7] like to be,
[G7] one more place I'd [C] like to see
To [E7] watch them old Blue Ridge [F] Mountains climb,
when I [C] ride old [G7] Number [C] Nine.

[C] When I die Lord, [G7] bury me deep,
[G7] down at the end of [C] Chestnut Street
[E7] Where I can hear old [F] Number Nine,
as [C] she comes [G7] down the [C] line.

[C] Freight train, freight train, [G7] goin' so fast,
[G7] freight train, freight train, [C] goin' so fast
[E7] Please don't tell what [F] train I'm on,
so they [C] won't know [G7] where I'm [C] gone.
