Streamline train, back train to front
That that train, took my baby on
Yes I'm leaving you in the morning, leaving on that streamline train
One thing I could tell you, get your mind off that thing
Trains rolled for New York, half past four
Four o'clock that morning, I was thinking on my baby door
She says come in loving daddy, where have you done been so long
I ain't had my great loving, since my streamline been gone
Train rolled to Birmingham, half past six
Half five that morning, I trying to get it fixed
I'm going out to West (?), I'm going to marry me an Indian squaw
Stay with them Indian chiefs, be my father-in-law
Baby I'm leaving you in the morning, leaving on that streamline train
One thing I can tell you, get your mind off that man
