I thought surely there was one, but no... This one and Little Birdie really make that Renfro CD.

"Weíre gonna start you off with one we learned up in New York State from a very nice postmaster up there. They call this one the..."

TRAIN ON THE ISLAND

G.........................
Train on that island
..C..................G....
I think I hear it blow
.............................
Run tell my good gal
......D..............G..
I'm sick, I canít go
.......................................
Iím sick and I canít go, Lord
......C....................G..
Iím sick and I canít go
..........................................
Well, sick and I canít go, Lord
......D........................
Iím sick and I canít go

Train on that island
Headed out west
Run and tell my good gal
No one I love best
No one I love best, Lord
No one I love best
There's no one I love best, Lord
Ainít no one I love best

Train on that island
I think I hearíd it whine
Run and tell my good gal
No one half as fine
No one half as fine, well
No one half as fine
No one half as fine, Lord
No one half as fine

Capo on 2 if you prefer A.

Do yourself a favor and get the Renfro Valley disc... They really ripped that version up.

It's worth it for the Train On The Island and that hard-as-nails Little Birdie alone... And you can't beat biscuits.
