Brakeman's Blues Submit Correct Lyrics

Portland Maine is just the same as sunny Tennessee
Portland Maine is just the same as sunny Tennessee
Any old place I hang my hat is home sweet home to me

I went to the depot and looked up on the board
I went to the depot and looked up on the board
It says, 'It's good times here but it's better on down the road'

I'll eat my breakfast here, get my dinner in New Orleans
I'll eat my breakfast here, get my dinner in New Orleans
I'm gonna get me a mama, Lord I ain't never seen

Where was you mama when the train left the shed?
Where was you mama when the train left the shed?
Standing in my front door wishing you've gone, I was dead

Songwriters
RODGERS, JIMMIE
