Midnight train, roll on Midnight train, roll on Clear them tracks and keep that whistle blowin
Take this stranger on to Santa Fe It seems like romance and danger
Follow this here tall dark stranger all along the way
Well the train was rumbling through the night heading south to Santa Fe And in a fancy car, with a private bar, and a personal valet
There was a bunch of cold eyed men a sittin at a poker table
Betting hot stakes all around
Ole Louisiana Lou had a knife in his shoe, was dealing a hand of cards
And ole Stagger Lee Crocket had a gun in his pocket, was sweatin bettin hard
And over in the corner this Mexican guy with two gold teeth and a patch on his
eye
Took a long hard look around
And then the door flew open, the stranger walked in and said don't ya'll get
excited
I know this here's a private game, and I know I wasn't invited
But I got a roll that'd choke a mule
I'm just about a big enough fool to lay it all right down
And everybody nodded as the stranger took his seat
He knew this bunch of cutthroat's would be mighty hard to beat
As the stranger knew then the toughest two by far were where he sat
Was a pot belly fellow from south Alabama, and a dude in a black felt hat
Well clear them tracks and keep that whistle blowin
Take this stranger on to Santa Fe It seems like romance and danger
Follow this here tall dark stranger all along the way
Well the stranger sat down he looked around at all them evil faces
And the pot-belly fellow drew a pair of queens, but the stranger he drew aces
And he kept on raising and pushin his luck, kept on winning like a run away
truck
He was giving them a beating
And the stakes got higher than a Chinese kite, the stranger kept getting hot
Till every cent everybody had was lying out in that pot
Then the stranger threw down a royal flush
Somebody said «Hey Man, that's enough friend I think you've been cheating»
And then the stranger picked the money up and said «Boys I better run»
And then the bot-bellyed fella pulled a razor out and somebody pulled a gun
They said «You may think you're a sly old fox
You're gonna leave here in a long pine box
If you don't leave that money alone»
Just about then the lights went out, and they all started fussing
And the lights came on, the stranger was gone, they all started cussin
And they searched that train from front to rear
The stranger he done disappeared, and all their money was gone
When the train pulled in the station, with the whistle blowing loud
A telegram was waitin, from the stranger for the crowd
Said «Thank you for the money boys, but don't feel too outdone
Cause It takes a dog to know a dog
I'm a howlin son of a gun.»
Well clear them tracks and keep that whistle blowin
Take this stranger on to Santa Fe It seems like romance and danger
Follow this here tall dark stranger all along the way
