Roll out here, Mister
If you need a little rest
Roll out here, Mister
If you need a little rest
Lay me down in Marbletown
A bone yard is the best

There was a bad bull on the railroad
Tried to put me off this train
There was a bad bull on the railroad
Tried to put me off this train
Lay me down in Marbletown
'Til the coast is clear again

I can hear them a-hollerin'
We got a man down here
We got a man down
We got a man down here
We got a man down

I'm gonna flip me a cannonball
That won't stop for anyone
Flip me a cannonball
That won't stop for anyone
Lay me down in Marbletown
Wait 'til morning come

A gonna roll out here in a tombstone
Wait here on my train
Roll out here in a tombstone
Wait here on my train
Lay me down in Marbletown
I hope that it don't rain

And I can still hear them hollerin'
We got a man down here
We got a man down
We got a man down here
We got a man down

Roll out here, Mister
If you need a little rest
Roll out here, Mister
If you need a little rest
Lay me down in Marbletown
A bone yard is the best
