On the Road to Hell there was a railroad track


Oh, come on!


There was a train comin' up from way down below


That was not six months!


Better go and get your suitcase packed, guess it's time to go


She's gonna ride that train


Ride that train...


She's gonna ride that train


Ride that train!

She's gonna ride that train 'til the end of the line
'Cause the King of the Mine is coming to call
Did you ever wonder what it's like on the underside?


Way down under


On the yonder side?


Way down yonder


On the other side of his wall
Follow that dollar for a long way down
Far away from the poorhouse door
You either get to hell or to Hadestown
Ain’t no difference anymore!
Way down Hadestown
Way down under the ground
Hound dog howl and the whistle blow
Train come a-rollin, clickety-clack
Everybody tryin' to get a ticket to go
But those who go they don’t come back
They goin'

Way down Hadestown
Way down under the ground


Ha!


Winter's nigh and summer's o'er
Hear that high, lonesome sound
Of my husband coming for
To bring me home to Hadestown


Way down Hadestown
Way down under the ground


Down there, it's a bunch of stiffs
Brother, I'll be bored to death
Gonna have to import some stuff
Just to entertain myself
Give me morphine in a tin
Give me a crate of the fruit of the vine
Takes a lot of medicine
To make it through the wintertime

Way down Hadestown
Way down under the ground


Every little penny in the wishing well
Every little nickel on the drum


On the drum!


All them shiny little heads and tails
Where do you think they come from?
They come from


Way down Hadestown
Way down under the ground


Everybody hungry
Everybody tired
Everybody slaves by the sweat of his brow
The wage is nothing and the work is hard
It's a graveyard in Hadestown


Way down Hadestown
Way down under the ground

As the band plays, you can hear HERMES, PERSEPHONE, the FATES, and COMPANY exclaiming in the background. They seem to be having a party


Mr. Hades is a mean old boss


With a silver whistle and a golden scale


An eye for an eye!


And he weighs the cost


A lie for a lie!


And your soul for sale


Sold!


To the king on the chromium throne


Thrown!


To the bottom of a Sing Sing cell


Where the little wheel squeals and the big wheel groans


And you better forget about your wishing well


Way down Hadestown
Way down under the ground


On the Road to Hell, there was a railroad car
And the car door opened and a man stepped out
Everybody looked and everybody saw
It was the same man they'd been singin' about


You're early!


I missed you


Mr. Hades is a mighty king
Must be making some mighty big deals
Seems like he owns everything


Kind of makes you wonder how it feels


All aboard...
A-one, A-two
A-one, two, three, four


Way down Hadestown
Way down under the ground
Way down Hadestown
Way down under the ground
Way down under the ground
Way down under the ground
