"Silver Train" is a song by the rock and roll band The Rolling Stones, from their 1973 album, Goats Head Soup.[1] The lyrics deal with the singer's relationship with a prostitute.[2] Recording of the song had already begun in 1970 during sessions for Sticky Fingers.

Rolling Stone critic Bud Scoppa had this to say of the song:

Johnny Winter had heard a demo of the tune and recorded a cover of it for his album, Still Alive and Well. His album's version was released even before Goats Head Soup.[2] The Black Crowes have also covered the song live.[3] Silver Train also appears on the Carla Olson / Mick Taylor "Too Hot For Snakes" album first released in 1991 and reissued autumn of 2012.
