Freight Train Blues
Written by John Lair
Recorded by Hank Williams

(C)I was born in dixie in a boomer's shack
Just a little old shanty by a (G7)railroad (C)track
The (C)hummin' of the driver was my lullaby
And a freight train whistle taught me (G7)how to (C)cry

(Chorus)
I've got the (C)freight train blues, lordy, lordy, lordy
Got 'em in the bottom of my (D7)ramblin' (G7)shoes
And when that (C)whistle blows, I've gotta go (C7)
(F)Oh! lordy! (C)guess I'm never gonna (A7)lose
The (D7)mean ol' (G7)freight train (C)blues

Now my (C)pappy was a fireman and my mammy dear
Was the only daughter of an (G7)en-gi-(C)neer
My (C)sister married a brakeman and it ain't no joke
Now it's a shame the way she keeps a (G7)good man (C)broke

(Chorus)
I've got the (C)freight train blues, lordy, lordy, lordy
Got 'em in the bottom of my (D7)ramblin' (G7)shoes
And when the (C)whistle blows, I've gotta go (C7)
(F)Oh! lordy! (C)guess I'm never gonna (A7)lose
The (D7)mean ol' (G7)freight train (C)blues
