Railroad lady

  		Chorus:  
	F	       C  
She's a railroad lady, just a little bit shady  
G			 C  
spendin' her days on the train  
	F			 C  
She's a semi-good-looker but the fast rails they took her  
	  G	            G7	     C  
now she's tryin',just tryin' to get home again  
  
  
Verse 1:  
C				F	       C  
South station in Boston, to the stock yards of Austin  
					       G  
from the Florida sunshine, to the New Orlean's rain  
C				F		C  
Now that the railpass  have taken the  best tracks 
      G				 C  
She's tryin',just tryin' to get home again  
  
Chorus:  
She's a railroad lady, just a little bit shady  
spendin' her days on the train  
Once a pullman car traveller,  nowthe brakemen won't have her  
She's tryin', tryin' to get home again  
  
Verse 2:  
Once a high rollin loner, thought he could own her  
he bought her a fur coat and a big diamond ring  
but she hocked them for cold cash 
left town on the Wabash 
Never thinkin', never thinkin' of home way back then  
  
Verse 3 (KEY-CHANGE: same chord pattern but in the key of D!):  
  
But the rails are now rusty, and the dining cars dusty 
and the gold plated watches have taken their toll  
And the railroads are dyin', and the lady is cryin'  
on a bus to Kentucky at home that's her goal  
  
Chorus (still in D):  
She's a railroad lady, just a little bit shady  
spendin' her days on the train  
She's a semi-good-looker but the fast rails they took her  
now she's tryin',  just tryin' to get home again  
     D			G    A    D  
On a bus to Kentucky and home once again
