          Well I got my mail late last night
                                   C7                F
          A letter from a girl who found the time to write
                              F                 C
          To her lonesome boy somewher's in the night
              F                  F
          She sent me a railroad ticket too
                                   C
          To make me to her lovin' arms
                            Am                  G7
          And the big steel rail gonna carry me home
                       C     Em Am G7
          To the one I love

          Well I bin out here man long days
          I haven't found a place that I could call my own
          Not a two bit bed to lay my body on
          I bin stood up, I bin shock down
          I bin dragged into the sand
          And the big steel rail gonna carry me home
          To the one I love

Refrain:

          Well I bin up tight nost every night
          Walkin' around the streets of this old town
          Not a friend around to tell my troubles to
          My old car; she done broke down
          'Cause I drove it into the ground
          And the big steel rail gonna carry me home
          To the one I love

Refrain:

          Well look over yonder across the plain
          The big drive wheels a-poundin' along the ground
          Gonna get on board and I'll be homeward bound
          Now I aint' had a home cooked meal
          And Lord I need one now
          And the big steel rail gonna carry me home
          To the one I love

Refrain:

          Now here I am with my hat in my hand
          Standin' on the broad highway, will you give a ride
          To a lonesome boy who missed the train last night
          I went in town for one last round
          And I gambled my ticket away
          And the big steel rail gonna carry me home
          To the one I love

Refrain:
