Lyrics
Well I'm goin' down the track, I got tears in my eyes
Tryin' to read a letter from my home
If this train runs me right, I'll be home by tomorrow night
'Cause I'm nine hundred miles from my home.
And I hate to hear that lonesome whistle blow.
(...)

Oh this train I ride on is a hundred coaches long
You can hear the whistle blow a hundred miles.
If this train runs me right, I'll be home by Saturday night
'Cause I'm nine hundred miles from my home.
And I hate to hear that lonesome whistle blow.
(...)

I will p*** you my watch, I will p*** you my chain
p*** you my golden diamond ring.
If this train runs me right, I'll be home by tomorrow night
'Cause I'm nine hundred miles from my home.
And I hate to hear that lonesome whistle blow.
I hate to hear that lonesome whistle blow.
I hate to hear that lonesome whistle blow.
