Tom Grey's Dream Chuck Hughes ASCAP
One night as I went out to check out the scene I made a little stop at the money machine I grabbed twenty bucks and headed out the door But I saw a piece of paper layin' on the floor I picked up the paper to see what it said And I started to sweat at the words that I read The paper told a story about hellfire and steam And a little adventure called Tom Grey's dream
Now Tom Grey lay down on that bar room floor Having drunk so much he could drink no more And he fell asleep with his troubled brain To dream that he rode on a hellbound train
The devil himself was the engineer And the whole boiler filled up with good lager beer And old Tom Grey he screamed in vain And he asked that devil to stop that train
Then he awoke with such an awful smile All soaked in sweat with his hair standing high And he prayed and he screamed for most of an hour To be free from that whiskey and that old devil's power His prayers and his screams, they were not in vain 'Cause he never more rode on that hellbound train
Now Tom Grey is gone but I feel the heat 'Cause I got on that train, and I took his seat They're punchin my ticket, they're takin' my pass It won't be too long 'fore they're fryin' my ass
And when they start fryin' I'm gonna scream 'Cause it won't be no party, It won't be no dream It won't be no picnic, it's prob'ly insane But I'm takin a ride on that hellbound train.
