Railroad Song

Song Author Jim Croce Submitted by: Anonymous
[D]When I was a [G]boy in the days of the [D]train
I'd sit by the [Bm]tracks on a long summer [A]day  
And I'd wave at the [G]brakesman, And he'd wave back at [D]me  
While the thunderclouds [Bm]rolled..[A]. Out of East Tenn[D]essee

[D]But the dream[G]s of a boy disappear when you're [D]grown
And though I may d[Bm]ream, the railroads are g[A]one  
The ties they are [G]rotten And the tracks shot to h[D]ell  
Along with my d[Bm]reams..[A]. and the old railroad b[D]ell  

[D]In my d[G]reams I ride the [A]rails to Cali[D]fornia
Workin' d[G]iners and [A]farms along the [D]way  
Or I'd ho[G]p a ride to [A]hide across the [D]border
With a bl[G]ack eyed girl bes[A]ide me all the [D]way  

[D]Now the mountains are s[G]ilent And the railroads are g[D]one  
And the coal towns no [Bm]longer hear the miners at d[A]awn  
But the train whistle [G]shrills out her memories to m[D]e  
While the thunderclouds [Bm]roll... [A] out of East Tenness[D]ee  

[D]In my d[G]reams I ride the [A]rails to Cali[D]fornia
Workin' d[G]iners and [A]farms along the [D]way  
Or I'd ho[G]p a ride to [A]hide across the [D]border
With a bl[G]ack eyed girl bes[A]ide me all the [D]way  

[D]Now the mountains are s[G]ilent And the railroads are g[D]one  
And the coal towns no [Bm]longer hear the miners at d[A]awn  
But the train whistle [G]shrills out her memories to m[D]e  
While the thunderclouds [Bm]roll... [A] out of East Tenness[D]ee  


When I was a boy in the days of the train
I'd sit by the tracks on a long summer day
And I'd wave at the brakesman, And he'd wave back at me
While the thunderclouds rolled... Out of East Tennessee

But the dreams of a boy disappear when you're grown
And though I may dream, the railroads are gone
The ties they are rotten And the tracks shot to hell
Along with my dreams... and the old railroad bell

In my dreams I ride the rails to California
Workin' diners and farms along the way
Or I'd hop a ride to hide across the border
With a black eyed girl beside me all the way

Now the mountains are silent And the railroads are gone
And the coal towns no longer hear the miners at dawn
But the train whistle shrills out her memories to me
While the thunderclouds roll... out of East Tennessee

In my dreams I ride the rails to California
Workin' diners and farms along the way
Or I'd hop a ride to hide across the border
With a black eyed girl beside me all the way

Now the mountains are silent And the railroads are gone
And the coal towns no longer hear the miners at dawn
But the train whistle shrills out her memories to me
While the thunderclouds roll... out of East Tennessee
