First Train Heading South

Song Author Johnny Horton Performer: Johnny Horton Submitted by: Anonymous

[C]I didn't know my baby loved me so
[F]Until that letter come to let me [C]know
Now [F]I pack my bags and then I'll [C]go  
And [G7]catch the first train I see heading [C]south


If I got this letter in Idaho
[F]Where snow's so deep it wouldn't let me [C]go  
I'd [F]went hog wild and melted all that [C]snow
And [G7]caught the first train I saw heading [C]south


If I got this letter in Iowa
[F]Nothing in this world could make me [C]stay
I'd [F]grab my hat and then been on my [C]way  
And [G7]caught the first train I saw heading [C]south

repeat #1

If I�d got this letter in Ohio
[F]With a busted back two arms and broken [C]toe  
There'd [F]be no hesitation I would [C]go  
And [G7]catch the first train I saw heading [C]south


But I got this letter up in Maine
[F]You can bet your bottom dollar I feel the [C]same
Ever[F]y clickety clack of drivers call her [C]name
As I [G7]ride this first train I caught heading [C]south

[C]I didn't know my baby loved me so
[F]Until that letter come to let me [C]know
Now [F]I pack my bags and then I'll [C]go  
And [G7]catch the first train I see heading [C]south


I didn't know my baby loved me so
Until that letter come to let me know
Now I pack my bags and then I'll go
And catch the first train I see heading south

If I got this letter in Idaho
Where snow's so deep it wouldn't let me go
I'd went hog wild and melted all that snow
And caught the first train I saw heading south

If I got this letter in Iowa
Nothing in this world could make me stay
I'd grab my hat and then been on my way
And caught the first train I saw heading south

repeat #1

If I�d got this letter in Ohio
With a busted back two arms and broken toe
There'd be no hesitation I would go
And catch the first train I saw heading south

But I got this letter up in Maine
You can bet your bottom dollar I feel the same
Every clickety clack of drivers call her name
As I ride this first train I caught heading south

I didn't know my baby loved me so
Until that letter come to let me know
Now I pack my bags and then I'll go
And catch the first train I see heading south
