First Train Heading South
Written and recorded by Johnny Horton

C
I didn't know my baby loved me so
F C
Until that letter come to let me know
F C
Now I pack my bags and then I'll go
G7 C
And catch the first train I see heading south


If I got this letter in Idaho
F C
Where snow's so deep it wouldn't let me go
F C
I'd went hog wild and melted all that snow
G7 C
And caught the first train I saw heading south


If I got this letter in Iowa
F C
Nothing in this world could make me stay
F C
I'd grab my hat and then been on my way
G7 C
And caught the first train I saw heading south

repeat #1

If I'd got this letter in Ohio
F C
With a busted back two arms and broken toe
F C
There'd be no hesitation I would go
G7 C
And catch the first train I saw heading south


But I got this letter up in Maine
F C
You can bet your bottom dollar I feel the same
F C
Every clickety clack of drivers call her name
G7 C
As I ride this first train I caught heading south

repeat #1
