Railroad Boy (鐵路男孩) - Joan Baez (瓊·貝茲)

She went upstairs to make her bed

And not one word to her mother said

Her mother she went upstairs too

Saying "Daughter oh daughter what's troublin' you ":


"Oh mother dear I cannot tell

That railroad boy that I love so well

He courted me my life away

And now at home will no longer stay "

"There is a place in London town

That real rude boy goes and he sits him down

And he takes that strange girl on his knee

And he tells to her what he won't tell me "


Her father he came home from work

Sayin' "Where is my daughter she seems so hurt"

He went upstairs to give her hope


An' he found her hangin' by a rope


He took his knife and he cut her down

And on her bosom these words he found:

"Go dig my grave both wide and deep

Put a marble stone at my head and feet

And on my breast put a snow white dove

To warn the world that I died of love
