I Like A Train

Gail Wade and Brooks Williams


Just a fun tune co-written with my friend Brooks Williams while attending The Swannanoa Gathering in North Carolina.
This song took first place at Connecticut's first Annual Podunk Bluegrass Festival Songwriters Contest in 2010.


I like a train, rollin’ along, I like the way she winds and rolls
I like her pullin’, tuggin’ howlin’ and a-chuggin’
Pullin on down the line
Like a steel guitar, she softly whines she’ll sing her way through
the coal black night, she’s gone, baby she’s gone

Get on board, take me away
Pack my bags, I’m gonna leave today
I’ll feel her pullin’, tuggin’ howlin and a chuggin’
Makin’ my way to you , yah to you
In my dreams the clickety clack
Too late now no turnin’ back
I’m gone, baby I’m gone

Conductor calls, yeah it’s time to go
Don’t look back, don’t ya be movin slow
I feel her engine burnin’, her wheels start to turnin’
Baby, I’m on my way, yah I’m on my way
Gonna leave these small town blues behind
I’ll be halfway there b‘fore the mornin’ light
Bye-bye, baby bye- bye

I like a train, yah I like a train
I like a train, Lord knows I like a train
