STREAMLINE TRAIN
(Red Nelson)
RED NELSON (DECCA 7171, 1936)

Streamline train, fastest train around
Hardworking stranger
You ain't gonna get me down
I'm gonna leave in the morning
Baby on that streamline train
Well, there's only one thing mama
Keep your mind of this man

I went to Union Station
Acting like a child
I asked that coal black porter
Which train do I ride
I'm gonna leave in the morning
Oh, baby on that streamline train
Well, there's only one thing mama
Keep your mind of this man

It gives me no comfort
Good old engineer
Oh, mean old freight train
You took my girl from here
I'm gonna leave in the morning
Baby on that streamline train
Well, there's only one thing mama
Keep your mind of this man

Now, women in Chicago
Are sure to make your time
They got a hand full of guineas
And a mouthful of "much obliged"
I'm gonna leave in the morning
Baby on that streamline train
Well, there's only one thing mama
Keep your mind of this man

Streamline train
Green back dollar bill
That lovin' composition
Gonna get somebody killed
I'm gonna leave in the morning
Baby on that streamline train
Well, there's only one thing mama
Keep your mind of this man
Keep your mind of this man
Keep your mind of this man
