LYRICS

I Don't Like No Railroad Man

I don't like no railroad man
I don’t like no railroad man
‘Cause the railroad man he will kill you if he can
And drink up your blood like wine

Drink up your blood like wine
Well he’ll drink up your blood like wine
‘Cause the railroad man he will kill you if he can
Drink up your blood like wine

Kempie’s got a nine dollars shawl
Well O’ Kempie’s got a nine dollars shawl
She come over the hill with a forty dollar bill
Baby were you been so long

Baby were you been so long
Well O’ Baby were you been so long
Well I’ve been in the pen with the rough and rowdy men
Baby were you been so long

I’ve got a home in Tennessee
Well I’ve got a home in Tennessee
I’ve got a home down in sunny Tennessee
Roll on buddy roll on

Roll on buddy roll on
Well Roll on buddy roll on
Wouldn’t roll so slow If you knew what I know
Roll on buddy roll on
