Blue Railroad Train

Blue railroad train
Going down the railroad tracks
It makes me feel so doggone blue
To listen to that old smokestack

Come back again
Let me hear the whistle blow
You’re taking the sun and leaving the rain
And I hate to see you go

Blue railroad train
Leaving me far behind
Gimme back the good old days
And let me ramble down the line

Blue railroad train
Leaving me her alone
You treat me good you treat me bad
You’re making me think of home

I’ve got the blues
I’m longing for your company
It’s many miles from where I am
To the only one for me

It’s lonely here
Waiting for the manifest
I hope that engineer is kind
Enough to let me be his guest

I’m not as bad
As you might think I am
I hobo here I hobo there
I’ve traveled these states around

Blue railroad train
A good old pal to me
You take me where I want to go
And my transportation’s free
