Yeah yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah yeah
A-well-a yeah yeah yeah yeah, it happened just that way
Well-a

I was born in a boomer's shack
'Bout that far from the railroad track
Choo-choo rattled my window pane
Sheet-iron roof tells me every time it rained

Well-a yeah yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah yeah
A-well-a yeah yeah yeah yeah, it happened just that way
Well-a

I went to a one-room school
Walked to and from the school
I carried lunch in a paper sack
It was one mile over and two miles back

Well-a yeah yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah yeah
A-well-a yeah yeah yeah yeah, it happened just that way

And now my brother worked hard in the grain
Poppa drove a choo-choo train
One sister was a righteous girl
But the other 'un' was a woman of the world

Well-a yeah yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah yeah
A-well-a yeah yeah yeah yeah, it happened just that way
