Big Train (From Memphis) (John Fogerty) When I was young I spent my summer days Playin' on the track The sound of the wheels Rollin' on the steel Took me out took me back cho: Big Train from Memphis Big Train from Memphis Now it's gone gone gone gone gone gone Like no one before He let out a roar And I just had to tag along Each night I went to bed With the sound in my head And the dream Was a song CHORUS (verse) Well I've rode 'em in And back out again You know what they say about trains But I'm tellin' you When that Memphis train came through This ol' world Was not the same CHORUS p.s. This song is about that Memphis rockabilly sound, you know, Elvis and those guys. And it only uses the correct three chords. Call it Bluegrass. copyright John Fogerty, 1984 DG apr96
