Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Four ladies promenade, go walkin' around the ring you said
Run right back, swing your man around and around you go
Join hands and circle, to the left go movin' then
Do an allemande left the corner girl, weave around that ring
Wish I was a freight train, honey, wish I was a diesel locomotive
Swing the girl you found then promenade the ring
Wish I was a freight train, honey, wish I was a diesel locomotive
I'd come a whistlin' down that track, crashin' in your door


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Head two you promenade get half way round the ring he said
Down the middle and square thru you're gonna get me four you go
You go all the way around and do the right & left thru and then
Veer to the left and couples circulate one time again
Now do a half tag, scoot back across and then
Swing that corner girl, gonna promenade my friend
Wish I was a freight train, honey, wish I was a diesel locomotive
I'd come a whistlin' down that track, crashin' in your door


FIGURE (ALTERNATE)    Basic, unknown progression

Side two you promenade get half way round the ring he said
Down the middle and square thru you're gonna get me four you go
You go all the way around and do the right & left thru and then
Veer to the left and couples circulate one time again
Now the girls trade, bend the line, square thru get me three
Swing that corner girl, promenade for me
Wish I was a freight train, honey, wish I was a diesel locomotive
I'd come a whistlin' down that track, crashin' in your door


TAG

Wish I was a freight train, honey
Wish I was a freight train, honey
Wish I was a freight train, babe

Freight Train Lyrics ID: 3052

I just came down from Chippewa
Had a station wagon and a hundred dollars
Thinking about the girl I'd lost a year before
I hadn't seen her for some time
Thought I might go on by
When your memory came flooding in and you closed that door.

Wish it was a freight train, baby
Wish it was a diesel locomotive
I'd come whistling down your track and crashing in your door.
Wish it was a freight train, baby
Wish it didn't have a heart
You need a shovel for the coal just to get me started
Wish it was a freight train, baby
Wish it was a freight train, baby
Wish it was a freight train.

Well every time I talk to you I hear your jealous lines
I feel like I've been left abandoned on some old railway side
And every time I hear your voice my water just gets cold
My stoker will not stoke and my boiler will not boil.

Wish it was a freight train, baby
Wish it was a diesel locomotive
I'd come whistling down your track crashing in your door.
Wish it was a freight train, baby
Wish it didn't have a heart
You need a shovel for the coal just to get me started
Wish it was a freight train, baby
Wish it was a freight train, baby
Wish it was a freight train.

Well every time I fell behind I could not get ahead
I wish someone would pull the lever and give me a little sand
And every time I slip behind even further back
I wish some switch man would come out of the fog and change my track.

Wish it was a freight train, baby
Wish it was a diesel locomotive
I'd come whistling down your track crashing in your door.
Wish it was a freight train, baby
Wish it didn't have a heart
You need a shovel for the coal just to get me started
Wish it was a freight train, baby
Wish it was a freight train, baby
Wish it was a freight train.

Wish it was a freight train, baby
Wish it was a diesel locomotive
I'd come whistling down your track crashing in your door.
Wish it was a freight train, baby
Wish it didn't have a heart
You need a shovel for the coal just to get me started
Wish it was a freight train, baby
Wish it was a freight train, baby
Wish it was a freight train.

Lyrics by Fred Eaglesmith.
Recorded by Alan Jackson.
