OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

4 ladies promenade once around that ring
Get back, swing your man, everybody swing
Join hands, circle to the left around you go
Allemande the corner of the hall, weave around you know
Ride the train, ride the train
Dosado and promenade I say
Sleepin' in a boxcar when it rains
Ride the train, ride the train


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Head couples promenade halfway around you go
Come down the middle, pass the ocean there you know
Extend your tag, swing thru, the boys will trade
Boys will run, bend that line, go up and back that way
Square thru 3/4 round and swing
Swing the corner, promenade I say
Sleepin' in a boxcar when it rains
Ride the train, ride the train


TAG

Ride the train, ride the train
C'mon, get on 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.
