Down the track this morning she did stroll
In an accident her foot got caught in a hole
I'm going to tell you the truth
Die for a touch of that cold hand
I'd be crying every time the Southern makes it's run

I'm going to buy them all
Cigarettes and chewing tobacco when I can
Trials and troubles are heavy for me

She's a ramblin' gal
Bound to leave her home
I begged my brown skin
Please don't leave me alone
I'm going to make amends
Bound to cry to touch her hand
I'm going to ride that line
'Till I see that black train come

I'm going to buy them all
Cigarettes and chewing tobacco when I can
Trials and troubles are heavy for me

Now people that Southern Pacific make her run
From Chapel Hill to the state of Washington
Round the bend at 40 miles
20 tons of loaded frieght a-comin' on
Florscheim's stuck and it won't come out
My good gal's dead and gone

I'm going to buy them all
Cigarettes and chewing tobacco when I can
Trials and troubles are heavy for me

Trials and troubles are heavy for me
