Title :

Railroad Man


When I was a little boy back in West Virginia

We lived very close to a railroad track

And I remember I used to dream about them trains

And where they might go

And the people that worked on the trains



And the train made music, it made you feel good

I can remember sometimes

I could just stand off all by myself

And just get funky listenin' to the train



And I used to pick up a handful of gravels

And throw 'em down on the ground for ties

Yeah, and I'd make up songs, I'd sing



He was a railroad man

He was a railroad man

He was a railroad man

'Til he stepped in front of the railroad train



He rode across the plains

He rode on a fruit freight train

The hauled bananas to Savannah

And wore bandannas made in old Japan



He was a railroad man

He was a railroad man

And a railroad man

'Til he stepped in front of the railroad train



He used to change his name

To every place he came

You know, his name was Tex when he's in Texas

And Bangor when he went to Maine



And a railroad man

No, he was a railroad man

And a railroad man

'Til he stepped in front of the railroad train



Used to change his name

To every place he came

You know, his name was Tex when he's in Texas

And Bangor when he went to Maine



He rode across the plains

He rode on a fruit freight train

The hauled bananas to Savannah

Wore bandannas made in old Japan



And he was a railroad man

He was a railroad man

Oh, a railroad man

'Til he stepped in front of the railroad train



Used to change his name

[Incomprehensible] to every place he came

His name was Tex when he's in Texas

And Bangor when he went to Maine



You know, he was a good time railroad man

Good time railroad man

Oh, a railroad man

'Til he stepped in front of the railroad train



It's alright

Say you know it's alright

If you've ever been downtown

You know what I'm talkin' 'bout



You know, he was a good time railroad, road

Good time railroad man

Oh, a railroad man

'Til he stepped in front of the railroad train



He used to change his name

To each and every place he came

You know, his name was Tex when he's in Texas

And Bangor when he went to Maine



He rode across the plains

He rode, he rode on a fruit freight train

The hauled bananas to Savannah

And wore bandannas made in old Japan



Oh, railroad man

Oh, railroad man

Oh, railroad man

Stepped in front of the railroad train
