lyrics

Nobody gonna’ ride on the railroad
Went down to Chestertown and they just said goodbye
Nobody gonna’ ride on the railroad
Once proud and shiny, now she’s dusty and dry

CHORUS:

Nobody rides
Can’t you hear that soulful whistlin’ in the wind
Nobody rides
Jumped the rails and roared away round the bend
Nobody rides
Say a prayer for every soul along the line
Nobody rides
On the train that made this great land of mine

Nobody gonna dance to the music
Don’t call the union hall it’s boarded up tight
Nobody gonna’ dance to the music
Nobody gonna’ dance to the music tonight

CHORUS

Hold on dear old dad of mine
Worked his fingers down to the bone
Hold on mama don’t you cry
I’d take you with me, if I knew where to go

(Repeat)

Nobody gonna’ walk on the water
Just sold my Bible for a good piece of bread
Nobody gonna’ walk on the water
Big train stole away and left us for dead

CHORUS

Nobody gonna’ ride on the railroad
Went down to Chestertown and they just said goodbye
Nobody gonna’ ride on the railroad
Once proud and shiny, now she’s dusty and dry…..
