Grateful Dead – Big Railroad Blues lyrics

Well my mama told me, my papa told me too,
Now my mama told me, papa told me too,
Well I shouldnt be here tryin to sing these railroad blues.

Wish I had alistened to what my mama said,
Wish I had alistened to what my mama said,
Well I wouldnt be here tryin to sleep in this cold iron bed.

Well I went to the depot, I never got there on time,
Went down to the depot, never got there on time.
Well my train done left, shes a rollin down the line.

Mister jailer go away now, don't tell me no lies,
Mister jailer go away, don't tell me no lies,
When the trains going down, shes rollin down the line.

Well my mama told me, my papa told me too,
Now my mama told me, papa told me too,
Well I shouldnt be here tryin to sing these railroad blues.
