LET THE TRAIN BLOW THE WHISTLE
Words and music by Johnny Cash
As recorded by Johnny Cash on "American Recordings" (1994)

I don't want no aggravation
When my train has left the station.
If you're there or not, I may not even know.
Have a round and remember
Things we did that weren't so tender.
Let the train blow the whistle when I go.

On my old guitar sell tickets
So someone can fin'lly pick it,
And tell the girls down at the ritz I said hello.
Tell the gossipers and liars
I will see them in the fire.
Let the train blow the whistle when I go.

CHORUS: Let 'er blow; let 'er blow
Long an' loud and hard an' happy; let 'er blow.
No regrets; all my debts will be paid when I get laid.
Let 'er blow; let 'er blow; let 'er blow.

You'll be left without excuses
For the evils and abuses
Down to the day from years and years ago.
And have yourself another toke
From my basket full of smoke
And let the train blow the whistle when I go. CHORUS

Let 'er blow; let 'er blow; let 'er blow.
