There's an engine at the station and the whistle blows my name
It's callin' callin' callin' come and get aboard the train
My baby's gone and I'm alone to live in misery
I'm gonna call and make a reservation for me

Gonna ride a blue train
Gonna ride a blue train
Gonna ride a blue train
Gonna ride a blue train

(Instrumental chorus – guitar bass riff)

I'm gonna climb aboard and ride until I learn to smile
I'll be knockin' out the blues while I'm knockin' out the miles
With my guitar beatin’ rhythm to the click-clack of the wheels
I'm gonna sing the blues 'cause that's the way that I feel

Gonna ride a blue train
Gonna ride a blue train
Gonna ride a blue train
Gonna ride a blue train

(Instrumental chorus – guitar bass riff)

Conductor go and tell the man to shovel on the coal
It doesn't seem as half as bad as long as I can roll
Give me another ticket and I'll stay and ride with you
There's nothin' left to live for in the world we're rollin' through

Gonna ride a blue train
Gonna ride a blue train
Gonna ride a blue train
Gonna ride a blue train
