Train 45

Lord, you ought to been in town and seen the train come down.

You could hear the whistle blow a hundred miles.

It's oh Lordy me, it's oh Lordy my.

Hear the whistle blow a hundred miles.

 

If my woman says so I'll railroad no more.

I'll sidetrack my train and go home.

And it's oh Lordy me, it's oh Lordy my.

I'll sidetrack my train and go home.

 

Well, I'm walking down that track, got tears in my eyes,

Trying to read a letter from my home.

If this train runs me right I'll be home tomorrow night.

I'm nine hundred miles from my home.

 

Well, I'm nine hundred miles from my wife and my child.

I'm nine hundred miles from my home.

If this train runs me right I'll be home tomorrow night.

I'm nine hundred miles from my home.
