The railroad comes through
The middle of the house
The railroad comes through
The middle of the house

The trains all come through
The middle of the house
Since the company bought the land

They let us live
In the front of the house
They let us live in the back
But there ain't no living
In the middle of the house
Cause that's the railroad track

When a bill collector
Comes to the house
He knocks and bangs on the door
So we sat him right down
In the middle of the house
And he never comes back no more
No, he never comes back no more

The railroad comes through
The middle of the house
The railroad comes through
The middle of the house

It comes and goes through
The middle of the house
And the trains are all on time
And here comes the 509

The railroad comes through
The middle of the house
In and out of the middle of the house
Right smack dab through
The middle of the house
Where the parlor used to be

There's a great big door
In the front of the house
There's a little old door in the back
But we can't have doors
In the middle of the house
Cause that's the railroad track

A relative came to visit the house
He liked to scream and fuss
So we sat him right down
In the middle of the house
And he never more bothered us
No, he never more bothered us

The railroad comes through
The middle of the house
The railroad comes through
The middle of the house

It comes and goes through
The middle of the house
Since the company bought the land

I'm singing this song in
The middle of the house
