Boxcar Blues Lyrics

I lost all my money
In a crooked poker game
Now I'm going home
On this old freight train

I got the boxcar blues
Shuffle on down the tracks
(Shuffle, shuffle on down the track)
I got the boxcar blues
And Lord, I may never get back

Well, I am so lonely
I think I could die
These ain't cinders
Tears in my eyes

I got the boxcar blues
Shuffle on down the tracks
(Shuffle, shuffle on down the track)
I got the boxcar blues
And Lord, I may never get back

I dream of my big
Baked biscuits in the pan
I dream of my woman
With another man

I got the boxcar blues
Shuffle on down the tracks
(Shuffle, shuffle on down the track)
I got the boxcar blues
And Lord, I may never get back

When I get back home
I'll get down on my knees
I'll beg to my woman
"Have a little mercy please"

I got the boxcar blues
Shuffle on down the tracks
(Shuffle, shuffle on down the track)
I got the boxcar blues
Lord, I may never get back

Now let me tell you, brother
It just ain't so
There ain't no easy life
For a bored hobo

I got the boxcar blues
Shuffle on down the tracks
(Shuffle, shuffle on down the track)
I got the boxcar blues
And Lord, I may never get back

No listen to me, brother
And take my advice
Stay away from trains
And them loaded dice

You'll get the boxcar blues
You'll shuffle on down the tracks
(Shuffle, shuffle on down the track)
You'll get the boxcar blues
And Lord, you may never get back

You'll get the boxcar blues
And Lord, you may never get back
(Shuffle, shuffle on down the track)
