The Devil’s Train
Recorded by Hank Williams
written by Mel Foree and Cliff Carlisle

The devil's train is long and black
It rides on rails of tears
It's headed for destruction now
       G7        C
With a drunken engineer
Oh see the greatness of the crowd
That waits beside the track
They're leaving on that devil's train
          G7     C
And never coming back

Oh Lord please stop that devil's train
Before it is too late
And teach them how to bow their heads
            G7         C
Before they seal their fate

The devil's train will take you to
A land of groans and pain
You'll spend your days in sorrow if
    G7                C
You ride that devil's train

Oh listen to that whistle scream
Like echoes from the blue
The throttle's wide and spouting steam
      G7            C
She's on her way to doom

Repeat #3
The devil's train is long and black
It's beautiful to see
It offers you temptation but
   G7             C
It brings you misery

So come and ride that glorious train
Where happiness is free
It's on its way to heaven now
   G7          C
To spend eternity

Repeat #3
