or
Woody Guthrie

Well I walked down to the railroad yard
T' watch a train roll by
Knew the train would roll that day
But I did not know what time

No I did not know what time, poor boy
Did not know what time
I knew the train would run that day
But I did not know what time

Good morning Mr. Railroad Man
What time does your train roll by?
Nine-sixteen and two forty four
Twenty-five minutes 'til five

At nine sixteen, two forty four
Twenty five minutes 'til five
Thank you Mr. Railroad Man
I wanna watch your train roll by

I'm standing on a platform
Smoking a big cigar
Waiting for some old freight train
Carrying an empty car

I rode her down to Danville Town
Got stuck on a Danville girl
You bet your life she was a pearl
She wore that Danville curl

She wore her hat on the back of her head
Like high told people all do
The very next train come down that track
Well I bid that gal adieu

I bid that gal adieu, poor boys
An' I bid that gal adieu
The very next train come down that track
Well I bid that gal adieu
