Spanish Train - Chris De Burgh

Written by:Chris De Burgh

There's a Spanish train that runs between

 

Quadalquivir and old Seville

And at dead of night the whistle blows

And people hear she's running still

 

And then they hush their children back to sleep

Lock the doors upstairs they creep

For it is said that the souls of the dead

Fill that train ten thousand deep

 

Well a railwayman lay dying with his people by his side

 

His family were crying knelt in prayer before he died

 

But above his bed just a-waiting for the dead

Was the Devil with a twinkle in his eye

"Well God's not around and look what I've found

 

This one's mine "

 

Just then the Lord himself appeared in a blinding flash of light

 

And shouted at the devil "Get thee hence to endless night "

But the Devil just grinned and said "I may have sinned

But there's no need to push me around

I got him first so you can do your worst

He's going underground "

 

"But I think I'll give you one more chance"

Said the Devil with a smile

"So throw away that stupid lance

It's really not your style"

 

Joker is the name Poker is the game

We'll play right here on this bed

 

And then we'll bet for the biggest stakes yet

 

The souls of the dead "

And I said "Look out Lord he's going to win

 

The sun is down and the night is riding in

 

That train is dead on time many souls are on the line

Oh Lord he's going to win "

 

Well the railwayman he cut the cards

And he dealt them each a hand of five

And for the Lord he was praying hard

Or that train he'd have to drive

Well the Devil he had three aces and a king

And the Lord he was running for a straight

He had the queen and the knave and the nine and ten of spades

All he needed was the eight

 

And then the Lord he called for one more card

But he drew the diamond eight

 

And the Devil said to the son of God

"I believe you've got it straight

So deal me one for the time has come

To see who'll be the king of this place

 

But as he spoke from beneath his cloak

 

He slipped another ace

 

Ten thousand souls was the opening bid

And it soon went up to fifty-nine

 

But the Lord didn't see what the Devil did

And he said "that suits me fine"

"I'll raise you high to hundred and five

And forever put an end to your sins"

But the Devil let out a mighty shout "My hand wins "

And I said "Lord oh Lord you let him win

 

The sun is down and the night is riding in

 

That train is dead on time many souls are on the line

Oh Lord don't let him win "

 

Well that Spanish train still runs between

 

Quadalquivir and old Seville

And at dead of night the whistle blows

And people fear she's running still

 

And far away in some recess

 

The Lord and the Devil are now playing chess

The Devil still cheats and wins more souls

And as for the Lord well he's just doing his best

 

And I said "Lord oh Lord you've got to win

 

The Sun is down and the night is riding in

 

That train is still on time Oh my soul is on the line

Oh Lord you've got to win "
