VERSE 1

When I was just a young boy

Watched my daddy hop a train

Followed him to the railroad tracks

By the riverside in the rain

Fixed my eyes on my old

As the smoke poured from the stack

Memory left a hole in my heart

Daddy never came back

CHORUS

Walking the railroad track blues

Walking the railroad track blues

So many times I asked God why

Watched that train disappear on the tracks

Walking the railroad track blues

Daddy never came back

(Instrumental)


(CHORUS

Walking the railroad track blues

Walking the railroad track blues

So many times I asked God why

Watched that train disappear on the tracks

Walking the railroad track blues

Daddy never came back

VERSE 2

Sometimes there ain't no rhyme or reason

Crazy world do the best you can

Countless time I walked those tracks

As a young boy and a man

Every time I hear that whistle blow

Daddy's ghost whispers in my ear

Son please forgive me you ain't to blame

Daddy I still love you let go of your shame

CHORUS

Walking the railroad track blues

Walking the railroad track blues

So many times I asked God why

Watched that train disappear on the tracks

Walking the railroad track blues

Daddy never came back

REPEAT CHORUS
