Lyrics
In the skies of Malpais a storm had begun
The Morelos Line Rail and a twin headed train
Started off that dark night through cimmerian rain

With an engine in front and one pushed behind
There were ten cars in all on the narrow gauge line
80 barrels of brandy and two hundred plus men
Loaded all that they had on Morelos Train Ten

Oh the lighting it clapped and the thunder did roll
The unforeseen flood that night took its toll
She washed out the farms and the missions of old
But the train and the men labored on with their load

It’s falling down and around in vain
Pounding on all the diluvian rain
Down Round Down

Half blind from the deluge the brakeman did not know
As he neared the barranca with the river below
The great storm in her hunger had devoured the bridge
And the train never slowed as they plunged from the ridge

It’s tumbling stumbling rumbling on
The dissonant screams of all hope is gone
Down Round Down

The Morelos lay mangled wedged hard in the mud
The brandy spilled out to blend with the blood
And when the engines caught fire their fumes fueled the flame
Taking all that was left of the Morelos Line Train

On June 23rd 1881
Extended Keywords: On 18 June 1881, the narrow gauge Morelos Railroad from Mexico City to Cuautla first opened to the public. To honor the occasion, the President of Mexico and other high government officials visited Cuautla, accompanied by about 300 soldiers. Approximately 100 of the soldiers returned to Mexico City on 20 June, with the remainder set to leave on 23 June. The 23 June train consisted of: Two locomotives (one forward, one rear), A passenger car for the Army officers, Five wooden boxcars for the soldiers and their wives, Two wooden boxcars carrying freight, including 80-100 barrels of brandy. There had been heavy rains in the area, and in the dark, the engineer was unable to see that the bridge was now unsupported. When the train started over the bridge it immediately dropped into the ravine. On the way down, burning coals from the rear locomotive set the barrels of alcohol aflame. Between the fall and fire, few survived.
