Last line each verse needs checking, plus what they are hauling in verse 3. It's on youtube :https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v-1MrKPXOU8

TRAIN SONG by Mandolin Orange

I never did have that fast train to take me down the line
I smell the smoke from the hot coal as the engine fires
If I could ask that engineer for one more mile and then I'll go
Just let the whistle wail and take it and slow

Oh, take me back to the railroad track and the sounds inside my mind
The rusty wheels and steel rails still whine
For I can hop that 909 and go back in time, some time ago
Just let the whistle wail and take it and slow

Won't you park my horse and buggy by some old lazy creek
Take my car to the graveyard and dig a hole real deep
Hauling rice and peas and wheat, they track on every street
Just let the whistle wail and give the rail my soul to keep

Mr Engineer, just one more mile and then I'll go......
Just let the whistle wail and take it and slow
Just let the whistle wail and take it and slow

I found these lyrics at Mandolin Orange's website! I also listened to the song on Spotify and on YouTube. Without the website, I don't think I would have gotten that line in verse 3 either:

TRAIN SONG
As recorded by Mandolin Orange on "Haste Make | Hard Hearted Stranger"

I never did have that fast train to take me down the line,
Or smelled the smoke from a hot coal as the engine fired.
If I could ask that engineer for one more mile and then I'll go,
Just let the whistle wail and take it in slow.

Take me back to the railroad track and the sounds inside my mind,
Where rusty wheels and steel rails still whine,
Where I can hop that 909 and go back in time some time ago.
Just let the whistle wail and take it in slow.

Park my horse and buggy by some old lazy creek.
Take my car to the graveyard and dig a hole real deep.
We'll holler "rest in peace" and weep, lay track on every street.
Let the whistle wail, and give the rail my soul to keep.

Mr. Engineer, just one more mile and then I'll go.
Just let the whistle wail and take it in slow.
Let the whistle wail and take it in slow.

Oh, thanks heaps for finding that, Jim!
That line in verse 3 was a surprise, I certainly mis-heard that one!
Pleased to to have the Mandolin Orange website too.
