Lyrics BLUES STAY AWAY FROM ME
BLUES WHY DON'T YOU LET ME BE.
DON'T KNOW WHY
YOU KEEP ON HAUNTING ME?

LOVE WAS NEVER MEANT FOR ME
TRUE LOVE WAS NEVER MEANT FOR ME.
SEEMS SOMEHOW WE NEVER CAN AGREE.

LIFE IS FULL OF MISERY
DREAMS ARE LIKE A MEMORY.
BRINGING BACK YOUR LOVE
THAT USED TO BE.

TEARS,
SO MANY I CAN'T SEE
YEARS
DON'T MEAN A THING TO ME.
TIME GOES BY
AND STILL I CAN'T BE FREE.

Lyrics verse 1:
I USED TO BE
A HAPPY,
HAPPY MAN,
THERE'S NOT MANY PEOPLE
I CAN UNDERSTAND.
THEY PROMISE YOU THIS
AND THEY PROMISE YOU THAT,
AND WHEN YOU'RE IN TROUBLE
THEY'LL LEAVE YOU FLAT.

Chorus:
I LET THE FREIGHT TRAIN
CARRY ME ON,
I LET THE FREIGHT TRAIN
CARRY ME ON,
I LET THE FREIGHT TRAIN
CARRY ME ON,
BECAUSE THERE AIN'T NO TROUBLE
WHEN YOU'RE RIDING ALONG.

Verse 2:
MY BABY WAS AS SWEET
AS SHE CAN BE
BEFORE SHE CAME
AND MARRIED ME
AS SOON AS SHE GOT ME
IN HER BAG,
SHE TREATED ME
LIKE AN OLD DISH RAG.

Chorus:
I LET THE FREIGHT TRAIN
CARRY ME ON,
I LET THE FREIGHT TRAIN
CARRY ME ON,
I LET THE FREIGHT TRAIN
CARRY ME ON,
BECAUSE THERE AIN'T NO TROUBLE
WHEN YOU'RE RIDING ALONG.

Verse 3:
I HAD A GOOD PAL
BUT HE DONE ME WRONG,
HE TOOK ALL MY MONEY
AND MY SWEETIE ALONG,
I NEVER DID THINK
HE'D CALL ME NAMES
BUT I DON'T WORRY
WITH ME RIDING THE TRAIN.

Chorus:
I LET THE FREIGHT TRAIN
CARRY ME ON,
I LET THE FREIGHT TRAIN
CARRY ME ON,
I LET THE FREIGHT TRAIN
CARRY ME ON,
BECAUSE THERE AIN'T NO TROUBLE
WHEN YOU'RE RIDING ALONG.
