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
