RAILROAD LADY (Jimmy Buffett / Jerry Jeff Walker) Jimmy Buffett - 1973 Jerry Jeff Walker - 1977 Willie Nelson - 1977 Lefty Frizzell - 1986 Eric Cutshall - 1995 She's a railroad lady Just a little bit shady Spendin' her days on the trains She's a semi-good looker But the fast rails they took 'er Now she's tryin', just tryin' to get home again South Station in Boston To the freightyards of Austin From the Florida sunshine To the New Orleans rain Now that the railpacks hHas taken the best tracks She's tryin', just tryin' to get home again She's a railroad lady Just a little bit shady Spendin' her life on a train Once a pullman car traveller Now the brakeman won't have 'er She's tryin', just tryin' to get home again Once a high ballin' loner He thought he could own 'er Bought her a fur and a big diamond ring She hocked 'em for cold cash Left town on the Wabash Never thinkin', never thinkin' of home way back then But the rails are now rusty The dinin' car's dusty Gold plated watches have taken their toll Yeah the railroads are dyin' And the lady she's cryin' On a bus to Kentucky and home that's her goal She's a railroad lady Just a little bit shady Spendin' her life on a train She's a semi-good looker But the fast rails they took 'er Now she's tryin', just tryin' to get home again Yes on a bus to Kentucky and home once again
