The Train Kept A Rollin'
Johnny Burnette & The Rock 'n' Roll Trio Lyrics


I caught a train
I met a dame
She was a hepster
And a real gone dame She was pretty
From New York City
And we trucked on down that old fair lane
With a heave and a ho
Well, I just couldn't let her go

Get along, creepy little woman
Get along, well, be on your way
Get along, creepy little woman
Get along, well, be on your way
With a heave and a ho
Well, I just couldn't let her go

Well, the train kept a-rollin all night long
The train kept a-rollin all night long
The train kept me movin' all night long
The train kept a-rollin all night long
With a heave and a ho
Well, I just couldn't let her go

We made a stop in Albuquerque
She must of thought
That I was a real gone jerk
We got off the train at El Paso
Our lovin was so good, Jack
I couldn't let her go
Get along
Well, I just couldn't let her go

Get along, creepy little woman
Get along, well, be on your way
Get along, creepy little woman
Get along, well, be on your way
With a heave and a ho
Well, I just couldn't let her go

The train kept a-rollin all night long
The train kept a-rollin all night long
The train kept her movin' all night long
The train kept a-rollin all night long
With a heave and a ho
Well, I just couldnt let her go-oh-oh

It’s so sick

@Rottabilly Rockit great info but, are you referring to the recording? The video clearly shows Paul Burlison with his Esquire. By the way, the other day I saw a great movie based on Hank Garland’s life. He was quite the ladies man apart from his killer chops.

This song--and Link Wray's "Rumble"--were the spark that ignited the following decades of rebellious rock styles ranging from hard rock, metal, punk, hardcore, and thrash!

Mostly by adding dirt to guitar....hearing that, some people try to reproduce ...pedal appears....thanks to you, 50’s folk. You also have mister Bo Diddley with his famous beat...rhaaa love it

One more song to check out if you haven't is Space Guitar by Johnny Guitar Watson is absolutely dirty.

That solo and Bettie Page at the same time is enough to cause me to pass out from loss of blood flow to the brain.
