FREIGHT TRAIN BLUES Bob Dylan I was born in Dixie in a boomer's shack, Just a little shanty by the railroad track Freight train was it taught me how to cry, The holler of the driver was my lullaby. I've got the freight train blues (hee, hee, hoo) Oh, lawdy mama got em on the bottom of my ramblin' shoes And when the whistle blows, I gotta go Baby don't you know It looks like I'm never gonna lose The freight train blues. Well, my daddy was a fireman and my mama hear She was the only daughter of the engineer My sweetheart loved the brakeman and that ain't no joke Its a shame the way she keeps a good man broke. I got the freight train blues (hee, hee, hoo) Oh, lawdy I got em in the bottom of my ramblin' shoes And when the whistle blows, I gotta go Oh mama don't you know Well it looks like I'm never gonna lose The freight train blues. Well, the only thing that makes you laugh again Is a south bound whistle on a south bound train Every place I want to go I never can go because you know Because I got the freight train blues (hee, hee, hoo) Oh, lawdy mama, got em on the bottom of my ramblin' shoes
