Blue Railroad Train

Delmore Brothers

1 / 1 / 1 / 1
4 / 4 / 4 / 1
Blue railroad train, goin' down the railroad track
Makes me feel so doggone blue to listen to that old smokestack
Travellers are rollin' on, leavin' me here behind
Give me back them good old days and let me ramble down the line

Blue railroad train, leavin' me here alone
You treat me good, you treat me bad, you're makin' me think of home
I hear that lonesome train and love to hear the whistle blow
Takin' the sun and leavin' the rain and makin' me wanna go

I got the blues, longin' for some company
It's many miles from where I am to the only one for me
I'm so lonesome here, waitin' for the manifest
I hope that engineer is kind enough to let me be his guest

Blue railroad train, a good old pal of me
Takes me everywhere I wanna go, get my transportation free
Blue railroad train, Blue Railroad train...
