She's a railroad lady, just a little bit shady,
Spending her days on the train.

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 freight yards of Austin,
From the Florida sunshine to the New Orleans rain.
Now that the rail packs have taken the best tracks,
She's tryin', just tryin' to get home again.

She's a railroad lady, just a little bit shady,
Spending her days on the train.

Once a highballin' loner, he thought he could own 'er,
Bought her a fur coat and a big diamond ring.
