Bill Monroe – Brakeman's Blues lyrics

Portland Main is just the same as sunny Tennessee
Portland Main is just the same as sunny Tennessee
Any old place I hang my hat is Home Sweet Home to me
Went down to the depot and I looked up on the board
Went down to the depot and I looked up on the board
It read it's good times here but better on down the road
Eat my breakfast here get my dinner in New Orleans
Eat my breakfast here get my dinner in New Orleans
I'm going to get me a Momma
Lord I ain't never seen
Where was you Momma when the train left the shed
Where was you Momma when the train left the shed
Standin' in my front door wishin' to God I was dead
