Roy Acuff — Freight Train Blues lyrics

I was born in dixie in a boomer抯 shack,
Just a little old shanty by a railroad track,
The humminof the drivers was my lullaby,
And a freight train whistle taught me how to cry.

Chorus:
I抳e got the freight train blues, lordy, lordy, lordy,
Got 抏m in the bottom of my ramblin shoes,
And when that whistle blows, I抳e gotta go,
Oh! lordy! guess I抦 never gonna lose,
The mean old freight train blues.
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/roy-acuff-freight-train-blues-lyrics.html ]
Now my pappy was a fireman and my mammy dear,
Was the only daughter of an engineer,
My sister married a brakeman and it ain抰 no joke,
Now it抯 a shame the way she keeps a good man broke.

Chorus:
I抳e got the freight train blues, lordy, lordy, lordy,
Got 抏m in the bottom of my ramblin shoes,
And when the whistle blows, I抳e gotta go,
Oh! lordy! guess I抦 never gonna lose,
The mean old freight train blues.
