Freight Train Blues Lyrics

Artist: Jimmy Dean
Album: Sings His Television Favorites

I was born in Dixie in a boomer shack
Just a little shanty by the railroad track
The humming of the drivers was my lullaby
And a freight train whistle taught me how to cry

I got the freight train blues lawdy lawdy lawdy
Got them in the bottom of my ramblin' shoes
And when the whistle blows I gotta go
Oh lawdy I guess I'm never gonna lose the freight train blues
[ guitar - fiddle - steel ]
Now my pappy was a fireman and my mammy dear
Was the only daughter of an engineer
My sweetie is a brakeman and it ain't no joke
It's a shame the way she keeps a good man broke

I got the freight train blues...
