Lightning Express
Recorded by the Everly Brothers [3/4 time]
written by Bradly Kincaid
C
The lightning express from the depot so grand
F C
Had started out on its way

All of the passengers that were on board
D7 G7
Seemed to be happy and gay

C
But one little boy who sat by himself
F C
Was reading a letter he had
F C
You could plainly tell by the look on his face
D7 G7 C
That the contents of it made him sad


The stern old conductor then started his round
F C
Taking tickets from everyone there

And finally reaching the sad little boy
D7 G7
He gruffly demanded his fare

C
I have no ticket the boy then replied
F C
But I'll pay you back someday
F C
Then I'll put you off at the next stop we make
D7 G7 C
But he stopped when he heard the boy say


Please Mr. Conductor
F C
Don't put me off of this train

The best friend I have in this world sir
D7 G7
Is waiting for me in pain

C
Expecting to die any moment sir
F C
And may not live through the day
F C
I wanna reach home and kiss mother goodbye
D7 G7 C
Before God takes her away


A girl sitting near was heard to exclaim
F C
If you put him off it's a shame

Taking his hand a collection she made
D7 G7
The boy's way was paid on the train

C
I'm obliged to you miss for your kindness to me
F C
You're welcome she said never fear
F C
Each time the conductor would pass through the car
D7 G7 C
The boy's words would ring in his ear


Please Mr. Conductor
F C
Don't put me off of this train

The best friend I have in this world sir
D7 G7
Is waiting for me in pain

C
Expecting to die any moment sir
F C
And may not live through the day
F C
I wanna reach home and kiss mother goodbye
D7 G7 C
Before God takes her away
