Gone Dead Train

This song is by Izzy Stradlin and appears on the album On Down The Road (2002).

My engine was pumpin steam
And I was grindin at you hard and fast
Burnin down the rails, tryin' to heat the way
Haulin ass and ridin' up the track
And laughing at the conductor
Who was tellin' me my coal
It would never last

But then the fire in my boiler
Up and quit before I came
Ain't no empty cellar
Like a gone dead train

Once was at a time when I could
Mama shave m dry
And raise a fever ice-down chill
Waitin at the station
With a heavy loaded sack
Savin' up and holdin' just to spill
Shootin my supply through my demons eye
Instead of holdin' my time, I hope I will

But then the fire in my boiler
Up and quit before I came
Ain't no empty cellar
Like a gone dead train

Yes it's a dead gone train
I'm gonna teach it to learn now, now
It's a dead gone train
Yes it's a dead gone train
I'm gonna teach it to learn now, now
It's a dean gone train
Gonna teach it, gonna teach it to learn

There ain't no easy day
When your daily run's a downhill pull
And there ain't no easy way
Wishin' for some jelly roll
There ain't no switch been made
To make your juicy lemon find
A spring to run a dry well full

But then the fire in my boiler
Up and quit before I came
Ain't no empty cellar
Like a gone dead train

Yes it's a dead gone train
I'm gonna teach it to learn
You know it's a dead gone train
Gonna teach it, gonna teach it to burn
It's a dean gone train
It's a dean gone train, you gotta learn
It's a dean gone train
Gonna teach it, gonna teach it to burn
