Lyrics

Cumberland County Train (No Stoppin' Now)

Written By: Jessie Haley

There's no time to talk to you right now..
I'm going to see my baby, you might think i'm crazy, but i'm heading out.
I'm in a hurry to catch that train..
Haven't seen my baby, here's hopin' maybe that he missed me.

Chorus:
I'm on the Train of Cumberland
Last stop Kentucky
Hope he hears me comin'
as the wistle blows...
There's no stoppin' me now
I'm on my way to see my baby.

Down through the valleys, by the lakes and streams
Memories of my darlin', soon i'm gona hold him and in his arms I'll be.
When he left for Kentucky..
he told me that he loved me, that he'd always think about me, and he kissed my lips goodbye.

Chorus X2
