Glendale Train - New Riders of the Purple Sage -

Somebody robbed the Glendale train
This mornin’ at half past nine
Somebody robbed the Glendale train
And I swear, I ain’t lyin’
They made clean off with sixteen G’s
And left two men lyin’ cold
Somebody robbed the Glendale train
And they made off with the gold

Charlie Jones was the engineer
He had twenty years on the line
He kissed his wife at the station dear
This morning at six thirty five
Everything went fine till half past nine
When Charlie looked up and he saw
Men on horses, men with guns,
And no sign of the law

Somebody robbed the Glendale train
This mornin’ at half past nine
Somebody robbed the Glendale train
And I swear, I ain’t lyin’
They made clean off with sixteen G’s
And left two men lyin’ cold
Somebody robbed the Glendale train
And they made off with the gold

Amos White was the Luggage man
and dearly loved his job
The company, they rewarded him,
With a golden watch and fob
Well Amos he was workin’ time
when the door blew off his car
They found Amos White in fifteen pieces
Fifteen miles apart

Somebody robbed the Glendale train
This mornin’ at half past nine
Somebody robbed the Glendale train
And I swear, I ain’t lyin’
They made clean off with sixteen G’s
And left two men lyin’ cold
Somebody robbed the Glendale train
And they made off with the gold
