Steel Rail Blues
- 121 Views
Well I got my mail late last night A letter from a girl who found the time to write To her lonesome boy somewheres in the night She sent me a railroad ticket too To take me to her lovin' arms And the big steel rail Gonna carry me home to the one I love Ooooh oooo oo whu hu hoo Ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo oo Well I bin out here many a long days I haven't found a place that I could call my own Not a two bit bed to lay my body on I bin stood up I bin shook down I bin dragged into the sand And the big steel rail Gonna carry me home to the one I love Well I bin up tight most every night Walkin' along the streets of this old town Not a friend to tell my troubles to My good old car she done broke down 'Cause I drove it into the ground And the big steel rail Gonna carry me home to the one I love Well I look over yonder across the plain The big drive wheels are poundin' along the ground Gonna get on board and I'll be homeward bound Now I ain't had a home cooked meal And Lord I need one now And the big steel rail Gonna carry me home to the one I love Now here I am with my hat in hand Standin' on the broad highway will you give a ride To a lonesome boy who missed the train last night I went in town for one last round And I gambled my ticket away And the big steel rail Won't carry me home to the one I love
