The Runaway Train

The breath taking locomotive story: Its not hard to realise the influence on this track, it's no way a copy of The Beatles classic but a mere nod in the direction of the worlds most famous band ever. The perfect drum beat for a children's song about trains. Let your child relive the incedible story of this Runaway Train.

To listen to the audio sample you need a current Flash Player



This version is available on the double album The Nursery Rhyme Collection 1


                 

The Runaway Train
The Runaway Train T'was in the year of '89 on that old Great Western line,
When the winter wind was blowin' shrill,
The rails were froze, the winds were cold, then the air brakes wouldn't hold,
And Number 9 came roaring down the hill.
The runaway train came down the track and she blew,
The runaway train came down the track and she blew,
The runaway train came down the track, her whistle wide and her throttle back,
And she blew, blew, blew, blew, blew.

The engineer said the train must halt and she blew,
The engineer said the train must halt and she blew,
The engineer said the train must halt, he said it was all the fireman's fault,
And she blew, blew, blew, blew, blew.

The fireman said he rang the bell and she blew,
The fireman said he rang the bell and she blew,
The fireman said he rang the bell, the engineer said “he couldn’t tell”,
And she blew, blew, blew, blew, blew.

The porter got an awful fright and she blew,
The porter got an awful fright and she blew,
The porter got an awful fright, he got so scared he went all white,
And she blew, blew, blew, blew, blew.

The conductor said there'd be a wreck and she blew,
The conductor said there'd be a wreck and she blew,
The conductor said there'd be a wreck and he felt the chills run down his neck,
And she blew, blew, blew, blew, blew.

The runaway train went over the hill and she blew,
The runaway train went over the hill and she blew,
The runaway train went over the hill and the last we heard she was going still,
And she blew, blew, blew, blew, blew.
