Freight Train Blues
as arranged by Bob Dylan

C
I was born in Dixie in a boomer's shack

                            F        C
Just a little shanty by the railroad track


Freight train whistle taught me how to cry

                              F    C
Hummin' of the drivers was my lullaby


I got the freight train blues

                                              F       G
Oh lordy, mama, I got 'em in the bottom of my ramblin shoes

             C
And when the whistle blows, I got to go

   F
Oh baby don't you know
 
         C                          G                      C
Well, it looks like I'm never gonna lose the freight train blues


Well, my daddy was a fireman and my old ma here.
she was the only daughter of the engineer
My sweetheart loved a brakeman and it ain't no joke
Shame the way she keeps a good man broke

I got the freight train blues
Oh lordy, mama, I got 'em in the bottom of my ramblin shoes
And when the whistle blows, I got to 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 me laugh again
Is the south bound whistle on a south bound train
Every place I want to go
I never can go because you know

I got the freight train blues
Oh lordy, mama, I got 'em in the bottom of my ramblin shoes
