Reuben

 

Tommy Jarrell

Traditional

 

 

Oh reuben had a train

Runs from England to Spain

But he couldnít get no letters from his home

If you donít believe Iíve gone

Watch this train that I call on

 

Lord Iím nine hundred miles away from my home

Iím nine hundred miles

Away from wife and child

Lord I wish I way nine hundred more

This train she runs right

She gets home about daylight

Lord Iím nine hundred miles away from my home

 

Lord Reuben went to town

Police knocked him down

He that boy a holla hundred mile

Reuben got killed on that p&o line

And his poor body never got found

They found his head in the drivers wheel

About a miles and a half from town
