lyrics

Train on the island, listen to her squeal
Go and tell my true love happy I do feel
Go and tell my true love happy I do feel

Train on the island, headed for the west
Run and tell my true love, the boy I love the best
Run and tell my true love, the boy I love the best

Steam from the whistle, smoke from the stack
Gotta catch that 5:18, I'm never comin' back
Gotta catch that 5:18, I'm never comin' back

Train on the island, thought I heard her squeal
Go and tell my true love I can't hold the wheel
Go and tell my true love I can't hold the wheel

Train on the island, moaning mighty low
Run and tell my true love I'm sick and I can't go
Run and tell my true love I'm sick and I can't go

Train on the island, headed for the north
Run and tell my true love he don't know what he's worth
Run and tell my true love he don't know what he's worth

Run and tell my true love happy I do feel
Run and tell my true love happy I do feel
