Turner told The Boot that the song was inspired by a vision that he had of a long, black train running down a track in the middle of nowhere. Turner said, "I could see people standing out to the sides of this track watching this train go by. As I was walking, experiencing this vision, I kept asking myself, 'What does this vision mean and what is this train?' It dawned on me that this train was a physical metaphor for temptation. These people are caught up in the decision of whether or not to go on this train" .<ref name="boot">{{cite web|url=|title=Josh Turner, 'Long Black Train' - Story Behind the Lyrics|last=Turner|first=Josh|date=26 March 2008|work=The Boot|accessdate=21 June 2010}}</ref>
