Freight Train Blues
recorded by Jimmy Dean
written by John Lair
I was born in Dixie in a boomer's shack
G7 C
Just a little old shanty by a railroad track

The humming of the drivers was my lullaby
G7 C
And a freight train whistle taught me how to cry

I've got the freight train blues Lordy Lordy Lordy
D7 G7
Got 'em in the bottom of my rambling shoes
And when that whistle blows I've gotta go
Oh Lordy guess I'm never gonna lose
G7 C
The freight train blues

Now my Pappy was a fireman and my Mammy dear
G7 C
Was the only daughter of an en-gineer

My sister married a brakeman and it ain't no joke
G7 C
Now it's a shame the way she keeps a good man broke

Repeat #2
