Song Meaning
Verse 1
I went down to the railroad yard, Watch the train come by
Knew that train would roll that day But I did not know what time.
Verse 2
I did not know what time, boys, did not know what time,
Knew the train would roll that day but I did not know what time.
Good morning, Mister railroad man, what time does your train roll by?
Verse 3
Nine sixteen and two forty four, twenty five minutes ?til five.
At nine sixteen, two forty four, twenty five minutes ?til five.
Thank you, Mister railroad man, I wanna watch your train roll by.
Verse 4
Standing on the platform, smoking a big cigar,
Waitin' for some old freight train that carries an empty car.
Verse 5
I rode her down to Danville town, got stuck on a Danville girl,
Bet your life she was a pearl, she wore that Danville curl.
Verse 6
She wore her hat on the back of her head like high tone people all do,
Very next train come down that track, I bid that gal adieu.
Verse 7
I bid that gal adieu, poor boys, I bid that gal adieu,
The very next train come down that track, I bid that gal adieu.
