Lyrics “The Runaway Train”

The Runaway Train T’was in the year of ’89
on that old Great Western line,
When the winter wind was blowin’ shrill,
The rails were froze,
the winds were cold,
then the air brakes wouldn’t hold,
And Number 9 came
roaring down the hill.

The runaway train came down
the track and she blew,
The runaway train came down
the track and she blew,
The runaway train came
down the track,
her whistle wide and her throttle back,
And she blew, blew, blew, blew, blew.

The engineer said the train must halt and she blew,
The engineer said the train must halt and she blew,
The engineer said the train must halt,
he said it was all the fireman’s fault,
And she blew, blew, blew, blew, blew.

The fireman said
he rang the bell and she blew,
The fireman said
he rang the bell and she blew,
The fireman said
he rang the bell,
the engineer said
“he couldn’t tell”,
And she blew, blew, blew, blew, blew.

The porter got an awful fright and she blew,
The porter got an awful fright and she blew,
The porter got an awful fright,
he got so scared he went all white,
And she blew, blew, blew, blew, blew.

The conductor said there’d be a wreck and she blew,
The conductor said there’d be a wreck and she blew,
The conductor said there’d be a wreck and
he felt the chills run down his neck,
And she blew, blew, blew, blew, blew.

The runaway train went over the hill and she blew,
The runaway train went over the hill and she blew,
The runaway train
went over the hill
and the last we heard
she was going still,
And she blew, blew, blew, blew, blew.
