I worked for the union
And on my very first communion
You know it never ever, ever, ever worked out right
So I spent the night sleepin' on the railway

I worked for the foundry
And man, my mind, it nearly drowned, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
It never, it could never work out right
So I said "So long, amigo, good night", slept on the railway

The railway, there's no better way
Ooh, the railway
And it's nice to talk to you today

I worked for the miller
A very, very nice type of fella
But I could see, it was never gonna work out right
So I split, spent the night sleeping on the railway

I worked in the subway arc
Oh, yeah, yeah
You know it never, no, no, never, no, never, no, ever, no, worked out right
So I said "So long" and spent the night on the railway

The railway, give me a bottle of whiskey
Ooh, the railway
Ooh, ooh, ooh, there's nothin' like the railway

And I'd like to thank someone
For mascara and good things that I've done
And for the time you spent and the friendship begun
And most of all, starry nights on the railway

Ooh, I don't know no better way
Than just, ooh, lyin' back an' drifting away
I can hear it, I can hear it

Lynott, Billy
