Lyrics

My name is Jesse Aberlain
Steel wheels keep on rollin’
I’m here aboard the Charleston Train
Steel wheels take me home
Private in the first brigade
Steel wheels keep on rollin’
‘Till they put me down into my grave
And I’ll go to war no more my love, I’ll go to war no more

‘Twas on a dark November day
(Steel wheels keep on rollin’)
Wrote a letter to my Anna Mae
(Steel wheels take me home)
“I’ll wed you darlin’, by God’s will.
(Steel wheels keep on rollin’)
If I return from Honey Hill.”
And I’ll go to war no more my love, I’ll go to war no more

We dug our trenches long and deep
(Steel wheels keep on rollin’)
Our scouts deployed, their watch to keep
(Steel wheels take me home)
The Blue Coats came to cut the rail
(Steel wheels keep on rollin’)
And our cannons roared and the bullets hailed
And I’ll go to war no more my love, I’ll go to war no more

I faced my fear and I stood my ground
And I cut my colored brothers down
‘Till a musket ball it pierced my breast
And they laid me down to rest

We won the battle, lost the war
(Steel wheels keep on rollin’)
We freed the rich and we killed the poor
(Steel wheels take me home)
They raised me not to lie or kill
(Steel wheels keep on rollin’)
But I learned those trades at Honey Hill
And I’ll go to war no more my love, I’ll go to war no more

My name is Jesse Aberlain
My restless spirit haunts this train
Anna Mae I love you still
(Steel wheels keep on rollin’)
But I’ll not return from Honey Hill
And I’ll go to war no more my love, I’ll go to war no more
I’ll go to war no more my love, I’ll go to war no more
