"The Ballad of Big Thunder Mountain" is the theme song of Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. Not heard on the ride itself, it is played in the queue and tells the story of how the mountain got it's curse.

The recording of the song appeared as a track for the discontinued Disneyland Forever CDs that were available at that park during the late 1990s

Lyrics

At Big Thunder Mountain station there’s a frightened trembling man,

His body’s weak and feeble and his skin has lost it's tan,

When I asked him for a ticket, he turned and shook his head,

He grabbed my by the shoulder and this is what he said:

"Before you get on board this train there’s something you should know,

When I finish with this tale you might not want to go."

I listened with amazement at what he said was true,

And now my friend the time has come to tell this tale to you.

Hear the legend, of Thunder Mountain,

If you're weak of heart, then stay away!

From Big Thunder, Mountain railroad,

Thunder Mountain Railroad ran away!

He said the legend has it on one foggy night in June,

The train and crew pulled out as well beneath the darken moon,

With a boiler full of water and a tender full of coal,

The whistle screamed a warning as the wheels began to roll.

Then like a bucking bronco with a cougar on its back,

The train began to run away down miles and miles of track,

What happened to the crew that night no one has ever learned,

The train pulled in all by itself, the men did not return.

Hear the legend, of Thunder Mountain,

If you're weak of heart, then stay away!

From Big Thunder, Mountain railroad,

Thunder Mountain Railroad ran away!

The history of Big Thunder, continues to unfold,

The stories of its danger continue to be told,

Of avalanche and rattle snakes and earthquakes in the night,

And voices of that phantom crew that chill your blood with fright.

So please forgive me mister if I’m standing in your way,

But before you buy your ticket, there’s one thing I have to say:

Hear the legend, of Thunder Mountain,

If you're weak of heart, then stay away!

From Big Thunder, Mountain railroad,

Thunder Mountain Railroad ran away!
