C position, standard tuning

Got the freight train blues, box cars on my mind
Got the freight train blues, box cars on my mind
You can't leave me, woman, ain't no use in tryin'

Whoa ha-lay-hee-oh, ha-lay-hee-oh, ha-lay-hee

Just as sure as that freight train makes up in the yard
Just as sure as the freight train makes up in the yard
I'm goin' to find my woman if I have to ride the rods

Whoa ha-lay-hee-oh, ha-lay-hee-oh, ha-lay-hee
El-eee-yeah ho-ha-lay-ee, el-ee-yeah ho-ha-lay-ee
Oh-ee-yeah ho-ha-lay-ee-hee-oh, oh-lay-hee-hee, oh-lay-hee

I asked the brakeman, "Give a poor boy a ride?"
I asked the brakeman to give a poor boy a ride
"I ain't got no whiskeys in me, ain't no place to hide."

Made it up in my mind, just to ride it 'til it stop
Made it up in my mind, ride it 'til it stop
I's be first on the bumper, then up on the top

SHORT YODEL

There ain't no use for no brakeman to come around
Oh, there ain't no use for no brakeman to come around
I'm going to find my woman and I ain't gonna go on the ground

SHORT YODEL
