In The Baggage Coach Ahead
Recorded by Mac Wiseman
Written by Gussie L. Davis

C Am C Am
On a dark stormy night as the train rattled on
All the passengers had gone to bed
Except one young man with a babe in his arms
D7 G7
Who sat with a bowed down head

C Am C
The innocent one began crying
C7 F
As though it's poor heart would break
One angry man said make that child stop its noise
D7 G7 C
For its keeping all us awake

Am C Am
Put it out said another don't keep it in here
We've paid for our berths and want rest
But never a word said the man with the child
D7 G7
As he fondled it close to his breast

C Am C Am
Where is its mother go take it to her
C C7 F
A maiden then softly said
I wish that I could was the man's sad reply
D7 G7 C
But she's dead in the coach ahead

B7 C Dm F
While the train rolled onwards the husband sat in tears
G7 C F C
Thinking of the happiness of just a few short years
B7 C Dm F
Baby's face brings pictures of a cherished one that's dead
C A7
The baby's crying can't waken her
D7 G7 C
In the baggage coach ahead
