Freight Train Blues
Recorded by Hank Williams written by John Lair 

C                                       
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
    C                                     
And when that whistle blows I've gotta go 
F         C                     A7    
Oh lordy  guess I'm never gonna lose
    D7       G7            C     
The mean old freight train blues


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

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

                                                  
I've got the freight train blues lordy lordy lordy
                            D7       G7     
Got 'em in the bottom of my rambling shoes
    C                                      
And when the whistle blows I've gotta go  
F        C                     A7    
Oh lordy guess I'm never gonna lose
    D7       G7            C     
The mean old freight train blues
