Shannon Curfman — No Riders lyrics

I am just a poor girl
Trying to get back home
Waiting by the station
Barefoot on the stones
Seven years from ponchatoula
Not one penny in my hand
Please mister help me
I come so far I cannot stand

He said we don't take no riders
No riders on this train
Go on ask the brakeman
He'll tell you just the same
I don't take no riders
Don't take no riders on this train
Best move on down the line, mama
Go on back from where you came

I done left my mama
When I was but a child
Took off with a young man
Started running wild
Seven years from ponchatoula
Ain't nothin' gone my way
Please mister help me
Can't you hear a word I say?

He said we don't take no riders
No riders on this train
Go on ask the brakeman
He'll tell you just the same
I don't take no riders
Don't take no riders on this train
Best move on down the line, mama
Go on back from where you came
