New Delhi Freight Train

Played by BK3

Some people think that I must be crazy
But my real name is just Jesse James
An I left them half-crocked, hard-knocks of black rock county
Just to ride on that New Delhi Train

Ridin' on that New Delhi Freight Train
Ridin' down that New Delhi Line
Ridin' on that New Delhi Freight Train
Well I left my love behind
Yeah I left my love behind

Yeah I'm just a country boy without angels
Ah just a country boy without gold
And I been to silver cities load of rainbows
Where I pillaged and I killed and I stole

Ridin' on that New Delhi Freight Train
Ridin' down that New Delhi Line
Ridin' on that New Delhi Freight Train
Well I left my life behind
Yeah I left my life behind

Then I killed a man named smilin Jordan
Yeah I killed him with one of my guns
And I knew that I had did what I had not ought to
But I welcomed the run from what I'd done

Ridin' on that New Delhi Freight Train
Ridin' down that New Delhi Line
Ridin' on that New Delhi Freight Train
Well I left my guns behind
Yeah I left my guns behind
