She's a railroad lady
Spending her days on a train
But the fast rails they took her
To get home again
South station in Boston
From the Florida sunshine
Now that the rail packs
She's trying just trying

Just a little bit shady
Once a pullin' car traveler
She's trying just trying

Thought he could own her
And a big diamond ring
Left down on the Wabash
Of home way back then
But the rails are now rusty
The gold plated watches
The railroads're dying
On a bus to Kentucky
She's a railroad lady...
