Railroad Song [Live][#][*]
by Lynyrd Skynyrd



I jumped off a boxcar down around Tennessee

I was cold tired and dirty hungry as I could be

But I had my guitar and a hundred railroad songs

So I asked the policeman

Can I stay here long

He said Mr. Hobo you got to go now

We don't want you around

See I'm trying to build a respectable town

And we don't need a hobo like you around



So I left that town, Lord with my guitar in my hand

Still cold and tired, kinda mad at the man

But this life that I chose to live, sometime's strange

See I'm trying to learn about the old music from ridin' the train

I'm a hobo I know, but thta's the price I pay

Guess I'll write me another song while I'm on my way

Catch me another train and this is what I'll say

Mr Choo-choo train take me away



I'm goin' to ride this train Lord until I find out

What Jimmie Rogers and the Hag was all about

See I play this rock n roll and I think that's fine

But I wnta to go back a little further in time

I'm a hobo I know but that's the price I pay

Guess I'll write me another song while I'm on my way

Catch me another train and this is what I'll say

Mr Choo-choo train take me away
