Coming through all Nashville coming through of line
Studying 'bout my little darling couldn't keep from cryin'
Ch. Honey babe I'm bound to ride
Don't you want to go?
Going to Atlanta just to look around
If things don't suit me gone hunt another town
Working on a railroad, saving all I can
Looking for that woman ain't got no man
Standing on the corner can't find mine from home
Studying 'bout that good town don't past and gone
If I die a railroad man, bury me under the ties
So I can hear old number four as she goes rolling by
