This song is by Flatt & Scruggs and appears on the compilation album 1948-1959 (1991) and on the compilation Mystery Train: Classic Railroad Songs, Volume 2 (1997).

Well, I had the blues
But now they're gone
I'm on a big black freight train
And we're movin' on

I'm on a big black train and I'm movin' on
I'm on a big black train and I'll soon be gone
Well, this big black train, it keeps movin' on

Well, if you want me, baby, better get on the track
Got a one-way ticket and I won't be back
Well, this big black freight train
It's movin' down the railroad track

Well, you cheated on me, baby, and you told me lies
You said that you was gonna laugh every time I cried
Well, this big black train
We're tellin' you good bye

I'm on a big black train and I'm movin' on
I'm on a big black train and I'll soon be gone
Well, this big black train, it keeps movin' on
