Lyrics

(chorus)
I don't need no man to try and slow my roll
I don't need no man to try and slow my roll
You're thinking out your backside baby
If you think I'll be controlled

I'm like the rolling thunder and the lightning in the sky
I'm like the rolling thunder and the lightning in the sky
I'm gonna make a noise and light you up
Wash you down the mountainside

If you could see inside, you'd see a heart that ain't been broke
If you could see inside, you'd see a heart that ain't been broke
You ain't the first man to come along
And give my heart a poke

Repeat chorus

I'm a wild freight train, feel my engine whine
I'm a wild freight train, feel my engine whine
I'll let you be my hobo, but I'll drop you at the end of the line

Repeat chorus

Behind every good man is a woman, I disagree
Behind this woman's where my man needs to be

Repeat chorus

Ah, you can't, you can't slow my roll
No, you can't, you can't slow my roll
