Railroad Lady

Willie Nelson

 FC
She's a railroad lady, just a little bit shady
 GC
 spendin' her days on the train
 FC
She's a semi-good-looker but the fast rails they took her
 GG7C
now she's tryin', tryin' to get home again

Verse 1:
 CFC
 South station in Boston, to the stock yards of Austin
 G
from the Florida sunshine, to the New Orlean's rain
 CFC
 Now that the rail have taken the e mumble>
 GC
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
 DGAD
On a bus to Kentucky at home once again
