Freight Train is an American railway folk song written by Elizabeth Cotten in the early 20th Century. Elizabeth composed the song in her teen years (assumingly 1901- 1902) inspired by the many sounds of steam trains in her home town in North Carolina. It is sung by The Jukebox Band in the Season 1 episode, Show and Yell. The band try to play the song to Matt to cheer up him, but Tito Swing was in his room counting his nickles. They attempt to play the song to no avail, none of the band members except Tito knew the song. They later remember the song and perform it without Tito.

Lyrics

Freight Train, Freight Train run so fast

Freight Train, Freight Train run so fast

Please don't tell what train I'm on

and they won't know what route I'm going.

When I've died lorde, bury me deep

Way down on old Chestnut street

so I can hear old Number 9

She comes rollin' by. Freight Train, Freight Train run so fast

Freight Train, Freight Train run so fast

Please don't tell what train I'm on

they won't know what route I'm going.

Run so fast! Here I come, look out!
