​Hell Bound Train

This song is by Frank Hutchison and appears on the compilation Lonesome Whistle: An Anthology of American Railroad Song (2012).

Come all you people if you want to hear
A story about a bad engineer
Who run his train all down the road
And every car had a heavy load

Jesus saves, glory hallelujah
Jesus saves, glory will come.
Jesus saves, glory hallelujah
Mean to work for Jesus 'til my last work's done

Boiler was loaded with whiskey and beer
And the Devil himself was the engineer
Everybody seemed to be happy and gay
As the Hell bound train sped on its way

Black and yaller, and red and white
All mixed together, it was glorious sight
Everybody seemed to be happy and gay
As the Hell bound train sped on her way
