Firs' on table, nex' on wall} OP corn whisky cause of it all. It's dat bad Railroad Bill.
Railroad Bill mighty bad man,
Shoot dem light out o' de brakeman's han\
It's dat bad Railroad Bill.
Railroad Bill went out Wes', Thought he had dem cowboys bes3. It's dat bad Railroad Bill.
Railroad Bill, Railroad Bill,
He never work and he never will.
It's dat bad Railroad Bill.
Two policemen dressed in blue Come down street in two an' two, Wuz lookin' fer Railroad Bill.
Ol' McMillan had a special train,
When he got dere it was a shower of rain.
Wuz lookin' fer Railroad Bill.
Ev'body tol' him he better turn back5 Railroad Bill wuz goin' down de track, Dat bad man Railroad Bill.
