From old Montana down to Alabama

I've been before and I'll travel again
You triflin' women can't keep a good man down
You dealt the cards but you missed a play

So hit the road and be on your way
Goin' board the Golden Rocket and leave this town


I was a good engine a runnin' on time

But baby I'm switchin' to another line
So honey never hang your signal out for me
I'm tired of runnin' on the same old track
Bought a one way ticket and I won't be back

This Golden Rocket's gonna roll my blues away


Hear that lonesome whistle blow

That's your cue and by now you know
That I got another true lover waitin' in Tennessee
This midnight special is a burnin' the rail

So woman don't try to follow my trail

This Golden Rocket's gonna blow my blues away


Hear her thunder on through the night

This Golden Rocket is doin' me right
And that sunny old southland sure is a part of me
Now from your call board erase my name

Your fire went out you done lost your flame

And this Golden Rocket is gonna roll my blues away


That old conductor he seemed to know

You done me wrong I was feelin' low
For he yelled aloud we're over that Dixon Line
The brakeman started singin' a song

Said you're worried now but it won't be long

This Golden Rocket is gonna leave your blues behind


Then the porter yelled with his southern drawl

Let's rise and shine good morning ya all
And I sprang to my feet to greet the new born day
When I kissed my baby in the station door

The whistle blew like it never before
Of the Golden Rocket that rolled my blues away
