Railroad Man Lyrics

Railroad Man - Bill Withers

 

We lived very close to a railroad track

 

When I was a little boy back in West Virginia

 

We lived very close to a railroad track

 

And I remember I used to dream about them trains

And where they might go

 

And the people that worked on the trains

 

And the train made music it made you feel good

 

I can remember sometimes

 

I could just stand off all by myself

And just get funky listenin' to the train

 

And I used to pick up a handful of gravels

 

And throw 'em down on the ground for ties

 

Yeah and I'd make up songs I'd sing

 

He was a railroad man

 

He was a railroad man

 

He was a railroad man

 

'Til he stepped in front of the railroad train

 

He rode across the plains

 

He rode on a fruit freight train

 

The hauled bananas to Savannah

And wore bandannas made in old Japan

 

He was a railroad man

 

He was a railroad man

 

And a railroad man

'Til he stepped in front of the railroad train

 

He used to change his name

 

To every place he came

 

You know his name was Tex when he's in Texas

And Bangor when he went to Maine

 

And a railroad man

 

No he was a railroad man

 

And a railroad man

'Til he stepped in front of the railroad train

 

Used to change his name

 

To every place he came

 

You know his name was Tex when he's in Texas

And Bangor when he went to Maine

 

He rode across the plains

 

He rode on a fruit freight train

 

The hauled bananas to Savannah

Wore bandannas made in old Japan

 

And he was a railroad man

He was a railroad man

 

Oh a railroad man

'Til he stepped in front of the railroad train

 

Used to change his name

To each and every place he came

 

His name was Tex when he's in Texas

And Bangor when he went to Maine

 

You know he was a good time railroad man

 

Good time railroad man

 

Oh a railroad man

 

'Til he stepped in front of the railroad train

 

It's alright

 

Say you know it's alright

 

If you've ever been downtown

You know what I'm talkin' 'bout

 

You know he was a good time railroad road

Good time railroad man

 

Oh a railroad man

 

'Til he stepped in front of the railroad train

 

He used to change his name

 

To each and every place he came

 

You know his name was Tex when he's in Texas

And Bangor when he went to Maine

 

He rode across the plains

 

He rode he rode on a fruit freight train

 

The hauled bananas to Savannah

And wore bandannas made in old Japan

 

Oh railroad man

 

Oh railroad man

 

Oh railroad man

 

Stepped in front of the railroad train
