Freight Train Blues Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

I was born in Dixie in a boomer shack
Just a little shanty by the railroad track
The humming of the drivers was my lullaby
And a freight train whistle taught me how to cry

I got the freight train blues, lawdy, lawdy, lawdy
Got them in the bottom of my ramblin' shoes
And when the whistle blows, I gotta go
Oh lawdy, I guess I'm never gonna lose the freight train blues

Now my pappy was a fireman
And my mammy dear was the only daughter of an engineer
My sweetie is a brakeman and it ain't no joke
It's a shame the way she keeps a good man broke

I got the freight train blues, lawdy, lawdy, lawdy
Got them in the bottom of my ramblin' shoes
And when the whistle blows, I gotta go
Oh lawdy, I guess I'm never gonna lose the freight train blues
