Railroad Lady - 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-good-looker but the fast rails they took her

G G7 C

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

Verse 1:

C F C

South station in Boston, to the stock yards of Austin

G

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

C F C

Now that the rail have taken the

G C

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

Chorus:

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

spendin' her days on the train

Once a pullen car traveller, the switchmen won't have her

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

Verse 2:

Once a high born loaner, thought he could own her

he bought her a fur coat and a big diamond ring

but she him for cold cash

in the town there

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

Verse 3 (KEY-CHANGE: same chord pattern but in the key of D!):

But the rails are now rusty, and the diamond got 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 (still in D):

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

spendin' her days on the train

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

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

D G A D

On a bus to Kentucky at home once again
