    Song Lyrics / B / Bob Dylan / Freight Train Blues Lyrics
    (first release??traditional, arranged by bob dylan)

    I was born in dixie in a boomer's shack,
    Just a little shanty by the railroad track
    Freight train was it taught me how to cry,
    The holler of the driver was my lullaby.
    I've got the freight train blues (hee, hee, hoo)
    Oh, lawdy mama got em on the bottom of my ramblin' shoes

    And when the whistle blows, i gotta go
    Baby don't you know
    It looks like i'm never gonna lose
    The freight train blues.

    Well, my daddy was a fireman and my mama hear
    She was the only daughter of the engineer
    My sweetheart loved the brakeman and that ain't no joke
    Its a shame the way she keeps a good man broke.
    I got the freight train blues (hee, hee, hoo)
    Oh, lawdy i got em in the bottom of my ramblin' shoes

    And when the whistle blows, i gotta go
    Oh mama don't you know
    Well it looks like i'm never gonna lose
    The freight train blues.

    Well, the only thing that makes you laugh again
    Is a south bound whistle on a south bound train
    Every place i want to go
    I never can go because you know
    Because i got the freight train blues (hee, hee, hoo)
    Oh, lawdy mama, got em on the bottom of my ramblin' shoes
