Tell 'em Marty, you got a word for it
Right here, oh, ooh, oh, look yonder comin'
Where? Where you comin' from?
Right over there boys, comin' down the railroad track
I said look-a-yonder comin', comin' down the railroad track
It's the Orange Blossom Special, bringin' my baby back
I'm goin' down to Florida, gonna get some sand in my shoes
Or maybe California, gotta lose there New York blues
Ride the Orange Blossom Special, now, lose these New York blues
One more time, this song is about a train, ya know
The Orange Blossom Special that used to run from Florida
Up the East Coast and around the East Coast in Virginia
Tater had a little hound dog one time
That played a little bit too close to the train track
And his luck ran out and the train got the hound dog by the tail
Cut his tail off, so Tater, tell 'em a little bit more about your hound dog
A-show 'em how he went, alright
Well, like you said, Marty, he just got to playin' around
A little bit to close to the railroad tracks
Cut about three inches of his tail off, boy, it did hurt
Though I don't know how it would feel but I'm sure it would hurt
He squalled out somethin' like this, he was just a little hound dog right
Really hurt him bad, he turned around about three flips
And took off up towards the house, up through the field there
Every step he was takin' he was a yakin' somethin' like this right here
