Railroad Lady Recorded by Lefty Frizzell Written by Jimmy Buffett and Jerry Jeff Walker [3/4 time]
C F C She's a railroad lady just a little bit shady G7 C Spending her days on a train F C She's a semi good looker but the fast rails they took her G7 C Now she's trying just trying to get home again
F C South station in Boston to the stockyards of Austin D7 G7 From the Florida sunshine to the New Orleans rain C F C Now that the rail packs have taken the best tracks G7 C She's trying just trying to get home again
F C She's a railroad lady just a little bit shady G7 C Spending her days on a train F C Once a Pullman car traveler now the switchman won't have her G7 C She's trying just trying to get back home again
F C Once a high-balling loner thought he could own her D7 G7 He bought her a fur coat and a big diamond ring C F C But she hocked them for cold cash left town on the Wabash G7 C Never thinking never thinking of home way back then
F C But the rails are now rusty the dining car's dusty D7 G7 The gold plated watches have taken their toll C F C The railroads are dying and the lady is crying G7 C On a bus to Kentucky and home that's her goal
G7 F G7 C On a bus to Kentucky and home once again
