Blue railroad train
I'm goin' down the railroad track
It makes me feel so doggone blue
To listen to that old smokestack

Drivers a-rollin' on
Leavin' me here behind
And give me back them good old days
And let me ramble down the line

Blue railroad train
Leavin' me here alone
You're treatin' me good
You're treatin' me bad
And makin' me think of home

I hear that lonesome train
And love to hear the whistle blow
She's takin' the sun
And leavin' the rain
And makin' me wanna go

I've got the blues
Longin' for her company
It's many miles from where I am
To the only one for me

It's so lonesome here
Waitin' for the manifest
I hope that engineer is kind
Enough to let me be his guest

Blue railroad train
A good old pal to me
Take me everywhere I wanna go
Get my transportation free

Songwriters
DELMORE, LIONEL ALTON
