​Little Black Train

This song is by Freakwater and appears on the album Old Paint (1995).

There's a little black train that's coming, coming down the track

You gotta ride that little black train 

And it ain't gonna bring you back

You may be a barroom gambler, cheat your way through life

You can't cheat that little black train 

Or beat this final ride

You silken barroom ladies, dressed in your worldly pride

You gotta ride that little black train

And it's coming in tonight

Your million dollar fortune, mansion glittering wife

You can't take it with you

When the train rolls in tonight

Get ready for your savior, fix your business right

You gotta ride that little black train

That's coming in tonight

There's a little black train that's coming, coming down the track

You gotta ride that little black train

And it ain't gonna bring you back
