The Railroad [Lee Hazlewood]
Lyrics:

Working on the railroad all day long
Working on the railroad sing this song
Sing about an old love I once knew
Sing about an old love maybe two

Working on the railroad
Working on the railroad
Work...
work...
working on the railroad

I drove a hot steel in my time
I drink a lot of stuff they call moonshine
I got me a woman in every town
Working on the railroad, never settle down

Working on the railroad
Working on the railroad
Work...
work...
working on the railroad

I draw my pay on a Saturday night
Go in town and had start a fight
Love me a woman a laugh and a joke
Working on the railroad, always a broke

Working on the railroad
Working on the railroad
Work...
work...
working on the railroad

When I die and you bury me
Alongside the tracks where I want to be
Don't you cry friend just remember this
There ain't much you all 'body miss

Working on the railroad
Working on the railroad
Work...
work...
working on the railroad
