Gone Dead Train [Edited Version][Edit][*] Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
It's a gone dead train
Yes, it's a gone dead train
Verse 2
My engine was pumpin' steam
And I was grindin' at you hard and fast
Burnin' down the rails, tryin' to heat the way
Haulin' a** and ridin' up the track
And I laughed at the conductor who was tellin' me my coal
It would never last
Verse 3
But then the fire in my boiler
Up and quit before I came
Ain't no empty cellar
Like a gone dead train
Verse 4
Once was at a time when I could
Mama shave 'em dry
And raise a fever ice-down chill
Waitin' at the station
With a heavy loaded sack
Savin' up and holdin' just to spill
Shootin' my supply through my demon's eye
Instead of holdin' my time, I hope I will
Verse 5
But then the fire in my boiler
Up and quit before I came
There ain't no empty cellar
Needs a gone dead train
Verse 6
Yes it's a gone dead train
I'm gonna teach it to learn now, now
It's a gone dead train
Yes it's a gone dead train
I'm gonna teach it to learn now, now
It's a gone dead train
Gonna teach it, gonna teach it to learn
Verse 7
There ain't no easy day
When your daily run's a downhill pull
And there ain't no easy way
Wishin' for some jelly roll
There ain't no switch been made
To make your juicy lemon find
A spring to run a dry well full
Verse 8
But then the fire in my boiler
Up and quit before I came
Ain't no empty cellar
Needs a gone dead train
Verse 9
Yes it's a gone dead train
I'm gonna teach it to learn
You know it's a gone dead train
Gonna teach it, gonna teach it to burn
It's a gone dead train
It's a gone dead train, you gotta learn
It's a gone dead train
Gonna teach it, gonna teach it, gonna teach it to burn.
