No Train To Memphis
By BR549
Written By Chuck Mead/S. Wilson/B. Colladay
CD: Tangled In The Pines – 2004
Tabbed By Larry Mofle

Well lightning struck at midnight with the thunder and the rain
My sleep was interrupted by the rhythm of a train
I asked of the conductor where this ‘ol train was bound
He punched my ticket then he whispered “Memphis town”

But there ain’t no train to Memphis anymore
       G                                D 
You’ve got to take the highway when you go
     G                                 C
Them rusty tracks from Nashville lay beside that stretch of road
          G                   D          G 
But there ain’t no train from Memphis anymore


Well I pinched myself and crossed my heart to see if it was real
Or was I just imagining the grinding of the wheels
I swore I heard that whistle and the clickity clack
As I rode that phantom streamline on a west bound track


Well we cruised into the delta like we woke up from a dream
I felt a bit confused cause I was blinded by the steam
I said “I come from Nashville and I just got off the train”
And that driver looked at me as if he thought I was insane
