Mama, I'm on fire
Old flame, sweet desire
G
Comin' on the midnight
                       D
Comin' on the midnight train
A
Rollin' steel and thunder
G             A7    D
Bring my baby back again

Verse 2:
Roll on down the line
Big wheels rollin' right on time
Hear that whistle blowin'
Hear that engine roar and whine
Take care of my baby
Ridin' on that Southern Streamline

Bridge:
                             G
Well, I got me a letter this mornin'
                        D
Just about the break of day
                    G
Bluebird ringin' my doorbell
A7                D
Rollin' my blues away
                           G
I said, Honey, we're goin' steppin'
                    D
Long about Saturday night
                         G
We're headed down to the station
A7                   D
Ev'rything'll be all right

Verse 3:
Honey, what's that sound?
Big wheels rollin' homeward bound
See that smokestack sparkin'
Lightin' up the purple sky
Take care of my baby
Ridin' on that Southern Streamline

(instrumental; same pattern as verses)

(bridge)

Verse 4:
Mama, I'm on fire
Old flame, sweet desire
Comin' on the midnight
Honey, let your little light shine
Rollin' steel and thunder
Ridin' on that Southern Streamline
Take care of my baby
Ridin' on that Southern Streamline
