JOAN BAEZ lyrics - Railroad Bill

JOAN BAEZ
"Railroad Bill"
(Traditional)

Well, Railroad Bill
Ol' Railroad Bill
He never worked and he never will
I'm gonna ride ol Railroad Bill

Well ol' Railroad Bill
he was a mighty mean man
He shot the midnight lantern
out of the brakeman's hand
I'm gonna ride ol' Railroad Bill

I'm going up on a mountain,
I'm going out west
38 special sitting
out of my vest
I'm gonna ride ol' Railroad Bill

I'll buy me pistol
just as long as my arm
Kill everybody
ever done me harm
I'm gonna ride ol' Railroad Bill

Well Railroad Bill
ol' Railroad Bill
He never worked
Lord he never will
I'm gonna ride ol' Railroad Bill

I got a 38 special
on a 45 frame
How in the world can I miss him
when I got dead aim
I'm gonna ride ol' Railroad Bill

Well Railroad Bill well
he took my wife
Said if I didn't like it
he would take my life
I'm gonna ride ol' Railroad Bill

Well, honey, honey
do you think I'm a fool
I wouldn't quit you
while the weather is cool
I'm gonna ride ol' Railroad Bill
