Railroad Bill

Railroad Bill, Railroad Bill
Never earned an honest dollar and I bet he never will
Ride on Railroad Bill

Railroad Bill, Railroad Bill
Lived way on top of old railroad hill

Railroad Bill he was a mighty mean man
Shot the lantern out of the brakeman's hand

Railroad Bill Railroad Bill
Lighting big cigars with a 20 dollar bill

Mrs MacMillan she hollered and squawled
Said that was hy husband I heard him fall

Railroad Bill said before he died
He would build a railroad for all the bums to ride

First verse



As recorded on #107 "Steel Drivin' Man"
