​Train on the Island

This song is by J.P. Nester and appears on the compilation Anthology of American Folk Music (1952).

Train on the island, since I heard it squeal
Go tell my true love, I can't hold the wheel
I can't roll the wheel, Lord, it's I can't hold the wheel

Thought he heard it blow, Lord, he thought he heard it blow

Train on the island, since I heard it blow
Go tell my true love, sick and I can't go
Sick, and I can't go

And I can't roll the wheel

Train on the island, since I've heard it squeal
Go tell my true love, how happy I do feel
Thought he heard it blow, Lord, thought he heard it blow

Train on the island, since I've heard it blow
Go tell my true love, long as I can go
Long as I can go

Lord, he thought he heard it blow

Train on the island, since I've heard it blow
Go tell my true love, sick and I can't go
Sick, and I can't go, Lord, sick and I can't go

Thought he heard it blow, Lord, thought he heard it blow
