Railroad Bill

Railroad Bill, Railroad Bill
Live way up on Railroad Bill
Ride, ride, ride

Well, Railroad Bill, Oh, Railroad Bill
He never worked and he never will
Ride, ride, ride

Well, Railroad Bill, he was a mighty mean man
He shot the midnight lantern out of the brakeman's hand
Ride, ride, ride

Well, I'm going up on a mountain, I'm going out West
A thirty eight Special sticken' out of my vest
Ride, ride, ride

I'll buy me a pistol just as long as my arm
Kill everybody ever done me harm
Ride, ride, ride

Well, Railroad Bill, oh, Railroad Bill
He never worked, Load, he never will
Ride, ride, ride

I got a thirty eight Special on a forty five frame
How in the world can I miss him when I got dead aim
Ride, ride, ride

Well, Railroad Bill, will, he took my wife
He said if I didn't like it he would take my life
Ride, ride, ride

Well, honey, honey, do you think I'm a fool
I wouldn't quit you when the weather is cool
Ride, ride, ride
