Freight Train Blues Lyrics

I was born in Dixie in a boomer's shack
Just a little shanty by the railroad track
The freight train whistle taught me how to cry
The whinin' of the driver was my lullaby

I got the freight train blues
Lordy lordy lordy, I got 'em in the bottom of my
ramblin shoes
And when the whistle blows, I got to go
Oh lordy don't you know it,
Looks like I'm never gonna lose the freight train blues

Well, my daddy was a farmer and my mama dear
She was the only daughter of the engineer
My sweetie was a brakeman and it ain't no joke
It's a shame the way they keep a good man broke

I got the freight train blues
I got the freight train blues
I got the freight train...

Well, my daddy was a farmer and my mama dear
she was the only daughter of the engineer
My sweetie was a brakeman and it ain't no joke
It's a shame the way they keeps a good man broke

I got the freight train blues
Lordy lordy lordy, I got 'em in the bottom of my
ramblin shoes
And when the whistle blows, I got to go
Oh lordy don't you know it,
Looks like I'm never gonna lose the freight train blues

Well the whistle blows I gotta go
Oh lordy don't you know it,
Looks like I'm never gonna lose the freight train blues

Well the only thing that makes me laugh I guess
Is the southbound whistle on the southbound train
The only place I want to go and I can't go
I got the freight train blues
Lordy lordy lordy, I got 'em in the bottom of my
ramblin shoes
And when the whistle blows, I got to go
Oh lordy don't you know I'm never gonna lose the
freight train blues
