Ghost Trains
Written by Famous Lashua
Recorded by Hank Snow
Album: Railroad Man (1963)

(Capo on 4)

Intro.:  (Am) x 4 bars

It was (Am)early in the fall and a-blowin' up a squall
From the (F)trestle you could hear the weirdest (E)moans
With a (Am)mighty lonesome cry came a whistle from the sky
And it (F)chilled the very marrow in my (E)bones

Then a (Am)loud rushin' roar like you never heard before
Turned the (F)blood to icy water in my (G)veins
As I (F)watched with rising fear something (Bb)strange was drawin' near
And I (E)saw in the clouds ghost (Am)trains

(Chorus)
(Am)Ghost trains, ghost trains, what a fearful sight
The (F)Cannonball and Number Nine were (G)racin' through the (C)night
Just as they (F)passed me by I heard the (E)engineer (Am)cry
"Give her (D)coal ! give her coal ! shovel it (G)on"

(Bridge)
You could (C)see the fireman grinnin' in the (F)engine that was winnin'
But I knew (E)before the finish they'd be (Am)gone
Well, he (E)knew before the finish they'd be (Am)gone

(Verse)
You could (Am)see the drivers roll as they shoveled on the coal
And the (F)black smoke came pourin' from the (E)stacks
As they (Am)thundered through the sky I am here to testify
You could (F)hear the wheels a-clickin' on the (E)tracks

Through the (Am)smoke and the steam you could see the headlights gleam
Now I (F)have no proof but still the fact re-(G)mains
You may (F)doubt it but I swear there were (Bb)cinders in my hair
When I (E)saw in the clouds, ghost (Am)trains

(Chorus)
(Am)Ghost trains, ghost trains, what a fearful sight
The (F)Cannonball and Number Nine were (G)racin' through the (C)night
Just as they (F)passed me by I heard the (E)engineer (Am)cry
"Give her (D)coal ! give her coal ! shovel it (G)on"

(Bridge)
You could (C)see the fireman grinnin' in the (F)engine that was winnin'
As I (E)watched I saw them fade into the (Am)dawn.
As he (E)watched he saw them fade into the (Am)dawn -----
