Listen to that Duquesne whistle blowing
Blowing like it's gonna sweep my world away

I wanna stop at Carmangale and keep on goin'
That Duquesne train gon' rock me night and day

You say i'm a gambler, you say i'm a pimp
But i ain't neither one

Listen to that Duquesne whistle blowing
Sounding like it's on a final run

Listen to that Duquesne whistle blowin'
Blowin' like she never blowed before

Little light blinkin', red light glowin'
Blowin' like she's at my chamber door

You smilin' through the fence at me
Just like you always smiled before

Listen to that Duquesne whistle blowin'
Blowin' like she ain't gon' blow no more

Can't you hear that Duquesne whistle blowin'?
Blowin' like the sky's gonna blow apart

You're the only thing alive that keeps me goin'
You're like a time bomb in my heart

I can hear a sweet voice steadily callin'
Must be the mother of our lord

Listen to that Duquesne whistle blowin'
Blowin' like my woman's on board

Listen to that Duquesne whistle blowin'
Blowin' like it's gon' blow my blues away

You old rascal, i know exactly where you're going
I'll lead you there myself at the break of day

I wake up every mornin' with that woman in my bed
Everybody tellin' me she's gone to my head

Listen to that Duquesne whistle blowin'
Blowin' like it's gon' kill me dead

Can't you hear that Duquesne whistle blowin'?
Blowin' through another no good town

The lights on my lady's land are glowin'
I wonder if they'll know me next time 'round

I wonder if that old oak tree's still standin'
That old oak tree, the one we used to climb

Listen to that Duquesne whistle blowin'
Blowin' like she's blowing right on time.  up
