Arkansas Traveler (2)

Arkansas Traveler (2)

I traveled out in Arkansas one day
On a freight that took my breath away
It went so slow the durn thing made me smile
Took a month and seven days to run about a mile

   Oh it's fun to be a-ridin' trains
   I mean a freight that's always late
   In Arkansas there is no law against a freight that's late
   If the train's on time it's ahead of time
   That's why the freight is always late
   No extra fare to get you there where you wanna go

I never want to take that trip again
Everything that crawled could beat that train
A snail that started with us in a race
Beat us by about three weeks and easily won first place
