Songs with the word TRAIN in the title (with youtube links)

Updated on November 19, 2012

This is a list of songs with the word TRAIN in the title. I love trains, especially the Big Rail Work Train I got for Christmas in 1970. I still have the thing, but haven't set it up in years. I loved running my train, adding the bottle that produced smoke, making lots of noise, and annoying my sister, but I digress,....

"Train Train" by Blackfoot. With 70-year-old Shorty Medlocke's unforgettable harmonica opening, this is one kick-ass song from 1979.

"Last Train to Clarksville" by the Monkees. RIP Davy Jones. The Monkees actually had some good songs, and this is my favorite of theirs.

"Morning Train" by Sheena Easton, before she met Prince and got all slutty,...

"Mystery Train" by Elvis Presley. He recorded this while at Sun Records in 1955, and it still sounds great. The original was done by blues man Junior Parker in 1953.

"Catch a Train" by Free. This could've gone on my Paul Rodgers list, but I put it aside for more Bad Company stuff. Still, a great song.

"Long Train Runnin'" by the Doobie Brothers. One of their enduring tunes.

"Train of Thought" by Cher. She had a string of hits in the early '70's, and this was one of them.

"Train Kept a Rollin'" by the Yardbirds and Aerosmith. I prefer the Aerosmith remake. The Aerosmith version:

"Rock and Roll Train" by AC/DC.

"Mule Train" by Frankie Laine.

"Chicken Train" by Ozark Mountain Daredevils. Just a fun song.

"Downtown Train" by Rod Stewart. The original was done by Tom Waits. Stewart's version became a monster hit for him, one of the biggest of his career.

As always, if you know of others, just add a comment. As for me, I need to catch the 5:15,....

      Forgot Midnight Train to Georgia, may the music gods strike me down flat. Also forgot the Soul Asylum song, heard it enough.

      I haven't put videos up because I would feel obligated to put one for every song, but it is a good idea.

      Good list. Maybe a video or two? That keeps people on the page for longer, part of how Google ranks your work.

      Nice Hub Catfish! A most excellent collection of songs with Trains in the title sir!

      Something about Trains seems to definately seem to inspire some great music (much more than other modes of transport imo). Songs about Cars and Trucks come across as a little corny and mules/horses are a very niche type of song. A couple of good songs have been written about Jets (Jet Airliner -Steve Miller, Jet - Paul McCartney & Wings) but none of these compare to trains.

      Anyhow a few of my favourite train songs if I may:

      (everybody loves the sound of a) Train in the Distance - Paul Simon

      Train Song - Tom Waits

      It takes a lot to laugh, it takes a Train to Cry - Bob Dylan

      And a couple of Train songs which are about Trains but don't mention the word train in the title:

      City of New Orleans - Willie Nelson

      Marakeesh Express - CSNY
