Testo della canzone The Railroad (Lee Hazlewood), tratta dall'album Trouble Is a Lonesome Town (Original Album Plus Bonus Tracks)

The Railroad - Lee Hazlewood

A workin' on the railroad all day long a workin' on the railroad sing this song
Sing about an old love I once knew sing about an old love or maybe two
A workin' on the railroad a workin' on the railroad
Work work workin' on the railroad

I drove a lotta hot steel in my time I drank a lotta stuff they call moonshine
I got me a woman in every town workin' on the railroad never settle down
A workin' on the railroad a workin' on the railroad
Work work workin' on the railroad

I draw my pay on a Saturday night go in town and start a fight
Love me a woman and laught at a joke a workin' on the railroad always a broke
A workin' on the railroad a workin' on the railroad
Work work workin' on the railroad

When I die then they'll burry me alongside of tracks where I wanna be
Don't you cry friends just remember this there ain't much your ole buddy miss
A-workin' on the railroad a workin' on the railroad
Work work workin' on the railroad

(Now we had a fella lived in Trouble named of Emery Zickafuce Brown
When he's about six years old we used to call him Emery
Course we didn't find out till he's almost nine
That his momma'd hung the elegant middle name of Zickafuce on him
Or we'd've been callin' him that all along
And of course none of us had any idea
That Zickafuce'd be so famous time he was twelve
And I'll tell you something he was famous
I know people come thirty miles
Just to take a look at Emery Zickafuce Brown
Walk away shakin' their heads not quite able to believe what they'd just seen
Time Zickafuce was twenty he had a face on him
That looked like somebody'd run four wagons together
I guess Windfield Bloodsaw he's the fella
That runs the food store in Trouble said it about as good as anybody
When he said that if we had one of those Mr America contests in Trouble
And Emery Zickafuce Brown was the only one to enter
The best he could possibly hope for was fourth place)
