Lyrics

"Mystery Train" Margie & Art Corey/BMI Copyright 2019 (C) Songuard April 14, 2019

1st Verse
Mystery train, gonna take me away
Gonna take me far, far, far away......
Hear the hum of the tracks, I ain't comin' back
Don't nowhere it's headed, just take me there...

2nd Verse
There's nothing in this town any more
Not really sure what I've been looking for?
Gonna take this one way train out town
Just take me there, maybe I'll be homeward bound...

Chorus
We all have baggage, that no one can see
I'll carry mine on this train with me
Where it's going oh, nobody cares
So start that engine and pull up those stairs

Clicky Clack.....Clicky Clack...
I ain't comin'.....
Oh, I ain't comin' backback........

3rd Verse
Why's everybody, dressed in black?
I'm waving good-by but no one's waving back!!
Did I see this scene in a late night T.V. Show
Why can't people see me, is there something I should know?

Oooo, Ooo.......Clicky Clack
Oooo, Oooo..... On this Mystery Train.....
Clicky Clack.......

Chorus
We all have baggage, that no one can see
I'll carry mine on this train with me
Where it's going....oh, nobody cares
So start that engine and pull up those stairs

Oooo......Clicky Clack
I ain't comin' back.....Clicky Clack

This is a top shelf song... Great job

Catchy song with strong harmonies and a good toe-tapping feel. Some nice pickin on the banjo and guitars.
