OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
Orange Blossom Special, Wabash Canonball
Chattanooga Choo Choo, this hobo's seen 'em all

Boys star by the right, you go rollin' round the line
Left allemande and weave the line
Ride the train, ride the train
Dosado and promenade
Sleeping in a box car when it rains
Ride the train, ride the train


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Head pair touch 1/4, do a walk & dodge
Dosado with the outside pair to an ocean wave go
Swing thru tonight, boys run to the right
Ferris wheel you walk right in and sweep 1/4 more
Pass thru, partner trade find the corner swing
Swing that girl and promenade
Sleeping in a box car when it rains
Ride the train, ride the train

Ride The Train

The Orange Blossom Special, the Walbash Cannonball
The Chattanooga Choo-Choo, this hobo's seen them all
I've watched the Santa Fe layer smoke against the sky
And listened to old Number Three rolling through the night

Ride the train, ride the train
Anywhere I'm going I ride trains
Sleeping in a boxcar when it rains
Ride the train, ride the train

The Southern Pacific, the Overland Express
Up ahead the coal cars with West Virginia's best
And Oklahoma's Frisco the biggest one of all
I've listened to the Silver Speed's lonesome midnight call

Ride the train, ride the train
Anywhere I'm going I ride trains
Sleeping in a boxcar when it rains
Ride the train, ride the train

Ride the train, ride the train (ride the train)
Anywhere I'm going I ride trains
Sleeping in a boxcar when it rains
Ride the train, ride the train

Ride the train, ride the train
Anywhere I'm going I ride trains
Sleeping in a boxcar when it rains
Ride the train, ride the train

Trains

Ride the train, ride the train
Anywhere I'm going I ride trains
Sleeping in a boxcar when it rains
Ride the train, ride the train

Lyrics by Teddy Gentry.
Recorded by Alabama.
