Good morning, Mr. Railroad Man
What time do your trains roll by?
"At 9:16 and 2:44
And 25 minutes 'til 5"

Well, it's 9:16 and 2:44
And 25 minutes 'til 5"
Thank you, Mr. Railroad Man
I wanna watch your trains go by

Standing on a platform
Smoking that cheap cigar
And waiting for an old freight train
That carries an empty car

Well, I pulled my hat down over my eyes
And I walked across the track
I caught me the end of an old freight train
And I never did come back

I stepped down in a gamblin' game
But I could not play my hand
I was thinkin' about that woman I loved
Run away with another man

Run away with another man, poor boy
Run away with another man
I was thinking about that woman that I loved
Run away with another man
