G D7 G
3 3 5 5 5 -4 4
So they wont know where Ive gone.

Freight train, freight train, comin round the bend
Freight train, freight train, gone again
One of these days turn that train around
Go back to my hometown.


One more place Id like to be
One more place Id love to see
To watch those old blue ridge mountains climb
As I ride ol number nine.


When I die please bury me deep
Down at the end of Bleecker street
So I can hear ol number nine
As she goes rollin by.
