NIGHT TRAIN TO MEMPHIS
Recorded by: Roy Acuff
Writers: Marvin Hughes, Beasley Smith and Owen Bradley

[G] Take that Night Train To Memphis 
Take that [C] Night Train To Memphis
And [G] when you arrive at the [D7] station
I'll be [G] right there to meet you 
I'll be [C] right there to greet you
So [G] don't turn [D7] down my invi-[G] tation.

CHORUS
Halle-[C] lu-jah! [Halle-lu-jah!]
Halle-[G] lu-jah! [Halle-lu-jah!]  
We'll be shoutin' hallelu-jah all the [D7] day
Oh we'll [G] have a jubilee 
Down in [C] Memphis, Tennessee
And we'll [G] shout halle-[D7] lu-jah all the [G] way.

Take that Night Train To Memphis 
Take that Night Train To Memphis
You know how I'm longin' to see you
Leave at three-fifty-seven; arrive at eleven
And I'll be shoutin' "Halle-lu-jah!"

CHORUS

Take that Night Train To Memphis 
Take that Night Train To Memphis
Tell that engineer to pull the throttle open
Keep that engine stack a-smokin', 
I'm not kiddin', I'm not jokin'
I'll soon be with my girl, I'm hopin'.

CHORUS
