Haggard, Merle - Railroad Lady Lyrics




She's a railroad lady just a little bit'shady
Spending her days on a train
She's the semi good looker but the fast rails they took her
Now she's trying just trying to get home again.

South station in Boston to the stockyards of Austin
From the Florida sunshine to the New Orleans rain
Now that the rail packs have taken the best tracks
She's trying just trying to get back home again.

She's a railroad lady just a little bit'shady
Spending her days on a train
She's the semi good looker but the fast rails they took her
Now she's trying just trying to get home again.

Once a high-balling loner thought he could own her
He bought her a fur coat and a big dimaond ring
But she hug in for cold cash left town on the Wabash
Never thinking never thinking of home way back then.

But the rails are now rusty the dining car's dusty
The gold bladed watches are taking their gold
The railroads're dying and the lady is crying
On a bus to Kentucky and home that's her goal.

She's a railroad lady just a little bit'shady
Spending her days on a train
Once a pull man car driver not a breakment won't have her
She's trying just trying to get back home again.

On a bus to Kentucky and home once again...

    She's a railroad lady just a little bit' shady
    Spending her days on a train
    She's the semi good looker
    but the fast rails they took her
    Now she's trying just trying to get home again.

    South station in Boston to the stockyards of Austin
    From the Florida sunshine to the New Orleans rain
    Now that the rail packs have taken the best tracks
    She's trying just trying to get home again.

    She's a railroad lady just a little bit shady
    Spending her days on a train
    She's the semi good looker
    but the fast rails they took her
    Now she's trying just trying to get home again.

    Once a high-balling loner thought he could own her
    He bought her a fur coat and a big diamond ring
    But she hug in for cold cash left town on the Wabash
    Never thinking never thinking
    of home way back then.

    But the rails are now rusty the dining car's dusty
    The gold bladed watches are taking their gold
    The railroads're dying and the lady is crying
    On a bus to Kentucky and home that's her goal.

    She's a railroad lady just a little bit shady
    Spending her days on a train
    Once a pull man car driver
    not a breakman won't have her
    She's trying just trying to get home again.
    On a bus to Kentucky and home once again.....
