This was only played once by the Grateful Dead, on 8 November 1970, though it was played more frequently by Jerry Garcia with the JGB and by Bob Weir with Kingfish. It was also played by The Other Ones on 16 July 1998. These are the lyrics as performed by the Dead.

Lyrics

Train I ride, fifteen coaches long (note 1)
Train I ride, fifteen coaches long
Well that long black train took my baby and gone

Train I ride, coming down the track
Train I ride, coming down the track
It took my baby, and it's never comin' back

Train I ride, fifteen coaches long
Train I ride, fifteen coaches long
Took my baby, you know it ain't never coming back

Train, train, going down the track
Train, train, going down the track
Took my baby, you know it ain't never coming back
