Well, it's cold in them tunnels today
Well, it's cold in them tunnels today
It's cold down in those tunnels today
Mama, working for the MTA

I run that six-line train
I run a six-line train
I run a six-line train
Clear from Brooklyn Bridge to Pelham Bay

I'm the son of a railroad man
I'm the son of a railroad man
I'm the son of a railroad man
Born and raised back in south Louisian'

This ain't my daddy's train
This ain't my daddy's train
This ain't my daddy's train
Mama, I ain't seen the sun in days

Yeah, them hard times are going around
Hard times are going around
Hard times are going around
Bringing hard luck on New York town

But I'm banking on the A-T-E
Banking on the A-T-E
I'm banking on the A-T-E
Brother Georgie's gonna see me free

So, it's cold in them tunnels today
Well, it's cold in them tunnels today, babe
It's cold in those tunnels today
Mama, working for the MTA
Yeah, I'm working for the MTA
