  • In the heat of the day down in mobile Alabama
    Working on the railroad with the steel driving hammer
    Gotta make some money to buy some brand new shoes
    Tryin' to find somebody to take away these blues
    "She don't love me" hear them singing in the sun
    Payday's coming and my work is all done

    Later in the evening when the sun is sinking low
    All day I been waiting for the whistle to blow
    Sitting in a teepee built right on the tracks
    Rolling them bones until the foreman comes back
    Pick up you belongings boys and scatter about
    We've got an off-schedule train comin' two miles out

    Everybody's scrambling,'n'jumping around
    Picking up their money, tearing the teepee down
    Foreman wants to panic, 'bout to go insane
    Trying to get the workers out the way of the train
    Engineer blows the whistle long and long
    Can't stop the train, gotta let it roll on
