Railroad Lady
Artist: Willie Nelson
Song: Railroad Lady

[Intro]
 C G C

[Chorus 1]
C        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', 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 rail packs have taken the best tracks 
       G                G7        C
She's tryin', tryin' to get home again

[Chorus 2]

        F                      C
She's a railroad lady, just a little bit shady
 G                        C
spendin' her days on the train
       F                            C
Once a Pullman car traveller, the switchmen won't have her
       G                    G7        C
She's tryin, just tryin' to get home again


[Verse 2]
   C                       F              C
Once a high ballin loner, thought he could own her
  C                                       G
he bought her a fur coat and a big diamond ring
        C                               F           C                 
but she hocked them for cold cash  in a town on the Wabash
 C                                G             C                               
Never thinkin', never thinkin' of home way back then


[Verse 3]

 D                                    G           D
But the rails are now rusty, and the dining cars dusty
 D                                           A
and the gold plated watches have taken their toll
   D                                  G       D
And the railroads are dyin', and the lady is cryin'
    D                   A               D
on a bus to Kentucky at home that's her goal


[Chorus 1]

 D                             G         D
She's a railroad lady, just a little bit shady
 D                        A
spendin' her days on the train
  D                              G               D                              
She's a semi-good-looker but the fast rails they took her
  D                         A         D
now she's tryin', tryin' to get home again
     D                  G    A    D
On a bus to Kentucky at home once again

About the artist behind Railroad Lady:

Willie Nelson (born April 30, 1933) is an American singer-songwriter and actor. He is widely regarded as one of the most beloved and notorious country music singers. He reached his greatest fame during the so-called "outlaw country" movement of the 1970s, but remains iconic, especially in American popular culture. In recent years he has continued to tour, record, and perform, and this, combined with activities in advocacy of cannabis, as well as a well-publicized 2006 arrest for cannabis possession, have made him the subject of renewed media attention.
