Lyrics

[Verse 1]
There’s an engine at the station and the whistle calls my name
It’s calling, calling, calling, come and get aboard the train
My baby’s gone and I’m alone to live in misery
I’m going to call and make a reservation for me

[Chorus]
Going to ride a blue train, going to ride a blue train
Going to ride a blue train, going to ride a blue train

[Verse 2]
I’m going to climb aboard and ride until I learn to smile
I’ll be knocking out the blues while I’m knocking out the miles
With my guitar, beat and rhythm, to the click-clack of the wheels
I’m going to sing the blues because that’s the way that I feel

[Chorus]

[Verse 3]
Conductor, go and tell the man to shovel on the coal
It doesn’t seem half as bad as long as I can roll
Give me another ticket and I’ll stay and ride with you
There’s nothing left to live for in this world, we’re rolling through

[Chorus]
