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

Ive got the freight train blues, Lordy, Lordy, Lordy
Got em in the bottom of my ramblin shoes
And when that whistle blows, Ive gotta go
Oh Lordy, guess Im never gonna lose
The mean old freight train blues

Now my pappy was a fireman and my mammy dear
Was the only daughter of an engineer
My sister married a brakeman and it aint no joke
Now its a shame the way she keeps a good man broke

Ive got the freight train blues, Lordy, Lordy, Lordy
Got em in the bottom of my ramblin shoes
And when that whistle blows, Ive gotta go
Oh Lordy, guess Im never gonna lose
The mean old freight train blues
