The Old Iron Trail
Written and recorded by Boxcar Willie

C F C G7
Well the old iron trail is a railroad track it runs all over our land
C F G7 C
And I had traveled every foot of it before I was a man
F C G7
My daddy told me stories he told me some pretty wild tales
C F C G7 C
Of long ago when he was a beau and traveled the old iron trail

F C G7
And he said well there ain’t no sofas in a boxcar there ain’t no feather bed
C F G7 C
There ain’t no carpet for your feet no pillows to lay your head
F C G7
There ain’t no milk and honey there ain’t no beer and ale
C F C G7 C
Life is hell the bread is stale out on the old iron trail

F C G7
Well I’m just like my daddy there’s hobo blood in me
C F G7 C
And that old iron trail that he knew so well soon was a-callin’ me
F C G7
I traveled all over this country over ever hill and dale
C F C G7 C
Riding on an old boxcar I traveled the old iron trail

F C G7
I want’cha to know there ain't no sofas in a boxcar there ain’t no feather bed
C F G7 C
There ain’t no carpet for your feet no pillows to lay your head
F C G7
There ain’t no milk and honey there ain’t no beer and ale
C F C G7 C
Life is hell the bread is stale out on the old iron trail

Spoken:

Better listen to me boys it ain’t no life of Riley out there
Stay home never roam I know what I’m talking about
Wished I’d listened to my dad
He’s a lot smarter than I gave him credit for

F C G7
Yeah there ain’t no milk and honey there ain’t no beer and ale
C F C G7 C
Life is hell the bread is stale out on the old iron trail
