G / / / |/ C G / |C G | Blue railroad train, going down the railroad tracks, C / / / |/ / G / | / / | It makes me feel so doggone blue, to listen to that old smokestack.


Come back again, let me hear the whistle blow, You're taking the sun and leaving the rain and I hate to see you go.


Blue railroad train, leaving me far behind, Gimme back the good old days and let me ramble down the line.


Blue railroad train, leaving me here alone, You treat me good, you treat me bad, you're making me think of home.


I've got the blues, I'm longing for your company, It's many miles from where I am, to the only one for me.


It's lonely here, waiting for the manifest, I hope that engineer is kind, enough to let me be his guest.


I'm not as bad, as you might think I am, I hobo here, I hobo there, I've traveled these states around.


Blue railroad train, a good old pal to me, You take me where I want to go and my transportation's free.
