The next train arrives on here at five o nineI’m standing where my daddy used to beTo follow his footsteps takes me three stops down the lineDown to the ben crawley steel companyWell I tried my hand at ranching but this didn’t come offSeems nothing in that for meIt always tried my patience which I haven’t enoughI’m destined to work in a steel companyJust you wait at home for me little womanBy now I should know how lovely you will beWaiting by the door for me little womanNow I wont moan when I get home from the ben crawley steel companyWhen crawley makes the jokes and four guys laugh a lotDamn, force a grin if you canI got so many words on the tip of my tongue to shoot him downBut he’d soon replace a mere steel driving manJust you wait at home for me little womanAlthough I know you won’t be as tired as meWaiting by the door for me little woman [my true lovin’ woman]Well I won’t slack when I get back from the ben crawley steel companyWell I’ve had my fill and it’s giving me hell, now it’s time for hateThanks mister for telling meSo I’ll shoot if I can and I won’t [don’t] give a damn about playing itStraightMy friends and the lord know what he’s done [he did] to meHe’s being staying at home with my little womanPlaying in the fields where I should always beIt’s hard to forgive my own little womanAnd to find a job ’cos I just blew up that steel companyHeh!
