  • The only thing I really own is what you see me wearing on my back
    The only friends I've ever known are the kind you meet along a railroad track
    The kind you bum tobacco from and see the world through a boxcar door
    A friend who talks and makes you laugh has nothing much but gives you half
    And maybe you don't see him anymore
    Special I hear your lonesome whistle whine
    Special keep moving me on down the line

    My mackinaw's full of holes and ain't too good at keeping out the cold
    My shoes are worn as paper thin my feet can feel the cinders through the soles
    Sometimes I see a pretty girl wonder what I've missed along the way
    Once someone special wore my ring loved me more than anything
    I gave her up and caught a train one day
    Special I had a special girl on time Special keep moving me on down the line
    Special I hear your lonesome
