Railroad Lady   Jimmy Buffett

[1973]                                     
Chorus:
     [F]She's a railroad lady
     Just a [C]little bit shady
     [G7]Spendin' her days on the [C]train
     She's a [F]semi-good looker
     But the [C]fast rails they took her
     Now she's [G7]tryin', just tryin' to [F]get [G]home [C]again

South [C]Station in [C7]Boston to the [F]freightyards of [C]Austin
>From the Florida sunshine to the New Orleans[G7] rain
[C]Now that the [C7]railpacks
Has [F]taken the [C]best tracks
She's tryin', just tryin' to [G7]get home a[C]gain

Chorus:
She's a railroad lady
Just a little bit shady
Spendin' her life on a train
Once a pullman car traveller
Now the brakeman won't have her
She's tryin', just tryin' to get home again

Once a high ballin' loner he thought he could own her
Bought her a fur and a big diamond ring
She hocked 'em for cold cash
Left town on the Wabash
Never thinkin', never thinkin' of home way back then

But the rails are now rusty
The dinin' car's dusty
Gold plated watches have taken their toll
Yeah the railroads are dyin'
And the lady she's cryin'
On a bus to Kentucky and home that's her goal

Chorus:
She's a railroad lady
Just a little bit shady
Spendin' her life on a train
She's a semi-good looker
But the fast rails they took her
Now she's tryin', just tryin' to get home again

[C]Yes on a [G7]bus to Kentucky and [F]home [G]once [C]again

Enjoy!
