Well when I was a young lad
Damned if I didn't know it all
When I was young like you
You know I knew it all
But if ya listen to an old dog bark
Ya might see them holes before ya fall

I'm gonna lay somethin' on ya' and then I'm gonna move on out
I'm gonna lay somethin' on ya' and then I'm gonna ease on out
And you can take it or leave it
But I know what I'm talkin' 'bout

Yeah, 'cause I done felt the pain
And I've been caught in the damned ol' rain
And, Lord, it's hard ta get off
The old white train
Well, the old white train costs a lot to ride
Your soul, your heart and even your pride
And it'll damn sure forever-more
Freeze your brain
Take a little advice
Stay away from the cocaine train

Yeah, 'cause I done felt the pain
And I've been caught in the damned ol' rain
And lord it's hard ta get off
The old white train

Yeah, the old white train costs a lot to ride
Your soul, your heart and even your pride
And it'll damn sure, forever-more honey
Freeze your brain
Take a little advice
Stay away from the cocaine train
Yeah take a little advice
And stay away from the cocaine train
Cocaine train!
