In the heat of the day
Down in Mobile Alabama
Working on the railroad
With a steel driving hammer

I gotta get some money
Buy some brand new shoes
Try to find somebody
Take away these blues

She don't love me
Hear em singing in the sun
Payday coming when
My work is all done

Later in the evening
When the sun is sinking low
All day I been waiting
For the whistle to blow

Sitting in a teepee
Built right on the track
Rolling them bones
Til the foreman come back

Pick up your belongings, boys
Scatter about
We got an off schedule train
Coming two miles out

Everybody's scrambling
And jumping around
Picking up their money
Tearing the teepee down

Foreman was a panic
Bout to go insane
Trying to get the workers
Out the way of the train

Engineer blows the
Whistle loud and long
Can't stop the train
He have to let it roll on
