David Allan Coe – Rails lyrics

Hey, lay me down some rails boys
Don't put me in jail boys
And if I make a little noise
Just leave me alone

I've been known to party some
But I anit never hurt noone
I've been ashamed of what I've done
Especially when I'm stoned

I've spent most of my life in honest thinking
And I never cared too much for serious drinking
Marijuana makes my eyes start blinking
And incense make my sinuses drain

So, lay me down some rails boys
Don't put me in jail boys
And if I make a little noise
Just leave me alone

I've been known to party some
But I anit never hurt noone
I've been ashamed of what I've done
Especially when I'm stoned

Now women make me think of consolation
Prison makes me think of isolation
Niggers made me vote for segregation
And cocaine makes me hard as a rock

So, lay me down some rails boys
Don't put me in jail boys
And if I make a little noise
Just leave me alone

I've been known to party some
But I anit never hurt noone
I've been ashamed of what I've done
Especially when I'm stoned

Well it's hard to work for a dollar a week
And the Ku Klux Klan is bigger
So take the sheets of of your bed
And let's go hang a nigger

And lay me down some rails boys
Don't put me in jail boys
And if I make a little noise
Just leave me alone

I've been known to party some
But I anit never hurt noone
I've been ashamed of what I've done
Especially when I'm stoned
