Railroad Bill, Railroad Bill
He never worked and he never will
I'm gonna ride Railroad Bill

Well Railroad Bill
Was a mighty mean man
He shot the light out of the brakeman's hand
I'm gonna ride, that bad Railroad Bill

Well Miss McMillian, she whooped and squalled:
That's my husband, for I heard him fall
I'm gonna ride, that bad Railroad Bill

When I went down on number one
Railroad Bill had just begun
I'm gonna ride, Railroad Bill

When I come back on number two
Railroad Bill had just got through
I'm gonna ride, Railroad Bill

When I went down on number four
Someone let fly with a forty-four
I'm gonna ride, Railroad Bill

Got a thirty-eight special in a forty-five frame
I can't miss cause I got dead aim
I'm gonna ride, Railroad Bill

Well Railroad Bill, rollin' down the hill
Lightnin' cigars with a ten-dollar bill
I'm gonna ride, Railroad Bill

Well Railroad Bill says, before I die,
He wanna build a railroad for the bums to ride
I'm gonna ride, that bad Railroad Bill
