1.

G / / / |G / C / | Train on the is-land, heard that whistle blow, G / / / |D / G / | Thought I heard my true love say, yonder comes my beau.

2.

Train on the island, hear the whistle blow, Go and tell my true love, I'm sick and I can't go.

3.

Train on the island, listen to her squeal, Go and tell my true love how happy I do feel.

4.

Train on the island, heading for the West, Me and my woman done split up, perhaps its for the best.

5.

Bring me a sip of water, bring it in a cup, Me and my man done split up, and we're never gonna make up.

6.

Show me the crow that flies so high, show me the one that falls, If I can't get the gal I love, I don't want none at all.

7.

Went out over the mountain, to hear that banjo ring, Went out over the other side just to hear my darling sing.

8.

Make me a banjo out of a gourd, string it up with twine, The only tune that it would play, I wish that gal were mine.
