Folk Song Of The Week – Let The Train Blow The Whistle on Frailing Banjo

This is one of my favorites. This used to be part of our hour long train medley. We would perform for an hour straight going from one train song into another for a solid hour! It was fun and I used to start laughing watching audience members dance until they almost fell down from exhaustion.

Let The Train Blow The Whistle is the Folk Song Of The Week and the only thing that you may find tricky on frailing banjo is the B minor chord. Don’t worry, you don’t have to move out of the chord position to get a melody note.

Have fun!

Let The Train Blow The Whistle

I don’t [G]want no aggravation

When my train has left the station

If you’re [C]there or not, I may not even [G]know

Have a round and [Bm]remember

Things we [C]did that weren’t so [G]tender

Let the train blow the [D7]whistle when I [G]go

On my guitar sell tickets
So someone can finally pick it
And tell the girls down at the Ritz I said hello
Tell the gossipers and liars I will see them in the fire
Let the train blow the whistle when I go

Let her [C]blow, let her [G]blow

Long and [G]loud and hard and happy

Let her [D7]blow

No [G]regrets, all my [Bm]debts will be [C]paid

When I get [G]laid

Let her blow, let her [D7]blow, let her [G]blow

You’ll be left without excuses
For the evils and abuses
Down to today from years and years ago
And have yourself another toke
From my basket full of smoke
And let the train blow the whistle when I go
