about

Traditional folk song. Recorded and engineered by Matt Parmenter at Ice Cream Factory Studio, Austin TX on January 1, 2020.

lyrics

Railroad Bill, Railroad Bill
He never worked and he never will
and it's ride ride ride

Railroad Bill he was a mighty mean man
He shot the midnight lantern out of the brakeman's hand
and it's ride ride ride

Railroad Bill you know he took my wife
He said if I didn't like it he would take my life
and it's ride ride ride

Railroad Bill, Railroad Bill
he lights his cigars with a ten dollar bill
and it's ride ride ride

He's got a pistol as long as his arm
and he'll shoot anybody who might do him harm
and it's ride ride ride

Going up the mountain I'm going out west
.38 Special sticking out of my vest
and it's ride ride ride

Honey, honey, honey don't think I'm a fool
I'd never quit you while the weather's so cool
and it's ride ride ride

Railroad Bill, Railroad Bill
He never worked and he never will
and it's ride ride ride
on Railroad Bill
