  • Who stole that train off the track?
    Whoever took it better come and put it back
    I heard that engine whistle blow
    It should have been here long ago (now)
    Who stole that train off the track?
    My baby wrote and said that she
    Was coming home on "ninety three" but
    Who stole that train off the track?
    I been waitin' here since early dawn
    The depot's closed, the agents gone
    Who stole that train off the track?
    (I said a) who stole that train off the track?
    Who stole that train that was bringin' my girl back?
    I heard that lonesome whistle blow
    It should have been here long ago
    Who stole that train off the track?
    Well I looked above me in the sky
    And saw the smoke a risin' high but
    Who stole that train off the track?
    That smoke was hangin' in the air

    But there was no engine anywhere
    (now) who stole that train off the track?
    (I said a) who stole that train off the track?
    Who stole that train that was bringin' my girl back
    Someone's playin' a joke on me
    They'd better bring my baby
    Who stole that train off the track?
    Well I looked and saw a cloud of steam
    And plainly heard a whistle scream but
    Who stole that train off the track?
    And I looked again with all my might
    But still no engine came in sight (now)
    Who stole that train off the track?
    (I said a) who stole that train off the track?
    Whoever took it better come and put it back
    I heard that engine whistle blow
    It should have been here long ago (now)
