Big Train

This song is by Roy Orbison, features Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins and appears on the compilation Class of '55 (1986) by various artists.

When I was young, I spent my summer days
Playin' on the track.
The sound of the wheels rollin' on the steel
Took me out, took me back.

Big train from Memphis,
Big train from Memphis,
Now it's gone gone gone, gone gone gone.

Like no one before, he let out a roar,
And I just had to tag along.
Each night I went to bed with the sound in my head,
And the dream was a song.

Big train from Memphis,
Big train from Memphis,
Now it's gone gone gone, gone gone gone.

Well I've rode 'em in and back out again
You know what they say about trains;
But I'm tellin' you when that memphis train came through,
This ol' world was not the same.

Big train from Memphis,
Big train from Memphis,
Now it's gone gone gone, gone gone gone.
