Lynyrd Skynyrd Railroad Song Lyrics

Last updated: 05/16/2011 11:00:00 AM

I jumped off a boxcar down around Tennessee
I was cold tired and dirty hungry as I could be
But I had my guitar and a hundred railroad songs
So I asked the policeman
Can I stay a long
He said Mr. Hobo won't you go now
We don't want you around
See I'm trying to build a respectable town
And we don't need a hobo like you hanging around

So I left that town Lord, with my guitar in my hand
Still cold and tired, kinda mad at the man
But this life that I chose to live, sometime's strange
See I'm trying to learn about the old music from ridin' the train well
I'm a hobo I know, but that's the price I pay
Guess I'll write me another song while I'm on my way
I'm gonna Catch me another train, this is what I say
Mr Choo-choo train... take me away

Choo-choo train

So I'm goin' to ride this train Lord until I find out
What Jimmie Rogers and the Hag was all about
See I.. I play this rock n roll, I think that's fine
But I like to go ride along a little further in time well
I'm a hobo I know but that's the price I pay
Guess I'll write me another song while I'm on my way
I'm gonna Catch me a freight train and this is what I say
Mr Choo-choo train

Choo-choo train
