Railroad Bum
recorded by Jim Reeves
written by J.A. Balthrop
 
C                                           G7
I used to be a railroad bum a living on the go
                                    C
I rode freights from Canada down to Mexico
                                                      G7
From sunny Cal to Minnesota where the rippling waters falls
                                                 C
I never seemed to have a dime but I had myself a ball
                                G7
Singing hi le hi lo he li le li lo I used to be
                              C
A railroad bum but I'm not anymore
 
                                          G7
I walked in the Silver Dollar in Reno one night
                                                            C
Dropped a quarter in a one armed bandit the lemons lined up right
                                                          G7
Took my winnings then played poker and I won ten thousand more
                                           C
I used to be a railroad bum but I'm not anymore
                                G7
Singing hi le hi lo he li le li lo I used to be
                              C
A railroad bum but I'm not anymore
 
                                                          G7
When cotton's white in Tennessee and shrimp boats sail in Maine
                                                      C
Peach picking time soon will find me riding a Georgia train
                                                     G7
Cause I get restless when I'm still I guess I always will
                                                C
Want to keep traveling all my life over another hill
                                G7
Singing hi le hi lo he li le li lo I used to be
                              C
A railroad bum but I'm not anymore
                                G7
Singing hi le hi lo he li le li lo I used to be
                              C
A railroad bum but I'm not anymore
