Hell Bound Train
Words and Music By Craig Bowers

Can't stop thinkin' I'm a rider on a Hell bound train
No I can't stop believin' I'm riding on a Hell bound train
I hear a hundred souls screaming
Like a whistle blowing in my brain

Got my ticket in my pocket
(I) don't believe I'm coming back
One way ticket in my pocket
I don't think I'm coming back
I thought I heard my baby wailin'
As she threw her body 'cross the track

The Conductor is a sinner
The Fireman is a murderin' man
That Conductor is a sinner
The Fireman is a murderin' man
The Engineer is laughin'
Got the throttle in his boney hand
