Ride With Railroad Bill

from by Phil Gammage

Railroad Bill, up on a hill
Lighting a cigar with a hundred-dollar bill.

You know that man he stole my wife,
If I don't like it, he’s gonna take my life.

Buy me a gun just as long as my arm
Shoot everybody that ever done me harm.

Gonna drink my whiskey, drink it in the wind
Doctor said it’ll blind me but he never said when.

Early one morning, standing in the rain
Around the bend come a long freight train.

Bill shot John Hardy that’s what they said
Left him on the train, stone cold dead

He’s a bad ass son of a bitch that Railroad Bill
He never worked and he never will

I can hear Bill singing his hobo song
He’s coming to kill me, it won’t be long
