Railroad Lady  Willie Nelson

Chorus:
She's a [F]railroad lady, [C]just a little bit shady
[G]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 [G]tryin', tryin' to [G7]get home [C]again
Verse 1:
[C]South station in Boston, to the [F]stock yards of [C]Austin
[G] 
[C]Now that the rail have taken th[F]e [C]
She's [G]tryin', tryin' to get home [C]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
On a [D]bus to Kentucky at [G]home [A]once [D]again
