Willie Nelson - Railroad Lady guitar chord

Railroad Lady

By Willie Nelson

Chorus:

F C

She's a railroad lady, just a little bit shady

G C

Spendin' her days on the train

F C

She's a semi-goodlooker but the fast rails they took her

G C

Now she's tryin', tryin' to get home again

C F C

South station in Boston to the stock yards of Austin

C G

from the Florida sunshine, to the New Orlean's rain

C F C

Now that the railpacks have taken the best tracks

G C

She's tryin', just tryin' to get home again

Chorus 2:

She's a railroad lady, just a little bit shady

spendin' her days on the train

Once a pulleman car traveler, the switchmen won't have her

She's tryin', just tryin' to get home again

Once a highballin’ loner thought he could own her

He bought her a fur coat and a big diamond ring

but she hopped on for cold cash, left town on the Wabash

Never thinkin', never thinkin' for home way back then

Change to key of D

But the rails are now rusty, and the dining car’s dusty

And the gold plated watches have taken their toll

And the railroads are dyin', and the lady is cryin'

On a bus to Kentucky at home that's her goal

Chorus 1 (still in D)
