B.b. King – Hold That Train Lyrics

Hold that train, conductor

Please don’t let that engineer start

Hold that train, conductor

Please don’t let that engineer start

Well, I wanna ride your train this morning

Just to ease my achin’ heart

Yes, for the last few mornings lately

Before I get out of my bed

Yes, for the last few mornings lately

Before I get out of my bed

Well, I hear your whistle moanin’

And it almost drives me out of my head

I’ll pay my fare when we starts rollin’

All your money’s right here in my pants

I’ll pay my fare when we starts rollin’

All your money’s right here in my pants

Well, I know I should back and buy a ticket

Yes, but I’m afraid to take the chance

Oh, don’t stop this train, conductor

Till this old state is out of sight

Yes, don’t stop this train, conductor

Till Mississippi is out of sight

Well, you know I’m going to California

Where I, I know my baby will treat me right
