DT Lyrics:




Subject: 'Sleepin' in the Boxcar When it Rains...'
From: centralboone@excite.com
Date: 19 Mar 99 - 11:37 PM

Hello. I am desperately seeking to find out who sings a particular song I remember from my childhood. These are the only lyrics I can remember:

RIDIN' TRAINS, RIDIN' TRAINS, ANYWHERE I GO I'M RIDIN' TRAINS, SLEEPIN' IN THE BOXCAR WHEN IT RAINS...

If you could help, I would be very grateful. Thank you.

Copied from http://www.losacordes.com/acordes-cavaquino/alabama/ride-the-train. This was written by Teddy Gentry and recorded by Alabama on their album "Feels So Right" (1981). (If that was your childhood, you're much younger than the average Mudcatter!)


RIDE THE TRAIN
 Intro: A  E  D  A

A                  D            E            A
The Orange Blossom Special, the Wabash Cannonball,
                     D          F#m             E
The Chattanooga Choo Choo, this hobo's seen 'em all.
    A                D          E                D
I've watched the Santa Fe lay her smoke against the sky,
    A               D            E                   A
And listened to old Number Three rollin' through the night.

                A D            A
CHORUS: Ride the train, ride the train.
                           D   
Anywhere I'm goin', I ride train,
                            A
Sleepin' in a boxcar when it rains.
         D E            A
Ride the train, ride the train.

A            D            E          A
The Southern Pacific, the Overland Express,
                  D             F#m             E
And up ahead, the coal car with West Virginia's best,
    A          D          E             D
And Oklahoma's Frisco, the biggest one of all.
    A               D             E                A
I've listened to the Silver Steed's lonesome midnight call.

REPEAT CHORUS

    G D A
END: Tra---in
