Nobody says the things he says
Nobody moves like he moves
Nobody makes me feel this way
I'm gonna marry that boy, oh Lord
I'm gonna marry that boy

Oh, my mother said to me
"Girl, you better watch yourself
'Cause a railroad man is an absent man"
I'm gonna marry that boy, oh Lord
I'm gonna marry that boy

We'll live in a little town
North of Duluth
Where my grandmother
Lived in her youth

When he comes home at night
He'll call to me
"My sweet, darling girl
Come, lay with me"

Oh mother, nothing compares
Nothing even comes close
To the way he comes up under me
I'm gonna marry that boy, oh Lord
I'm gonna marry that boy

Marry him in his Easter clothes
Marry me in white
Beneath a canopy of unearthly light

And our friends and family
Will all come to say
God bless this union
God bless this day

Soon his burdens will be mine
Soon this love will set us free
All my hope lies with him now

I'm gonna marry that boy, oh Lord
I'm gonna marry that boy
I'm gonna marry that boy, oh Lord
I'm gonna marry that boy
