my lyricsbox
In the heat of the day down in mobile alabama
Workin' on the railroad with a steel drivin' hammer
Gotta get some money, buy some brand new shoes
Try to find somebody to take away these blues
She don't love me here I'm sing in the sun
Pay day is coming when my work is all done

Up and in the evening when the sun is sinking low
All day I've been waiting for the whistle to blow
Sittin' in a tee-pee built right on the tracks
Rollin' them bones til the foreman comes back
Pick up your belongings boys and scatter about
We've got an off scheduled train comin' two miles out

Let it roll, let it roll, let it roll lord, let it roll
Pick up your belongings boys and scatter about
We've got an off scheduled train comin' two miles out

Everybody's scramblin' and a jumpin' around
Pickin' up the money and tearing the tee-pee down
The foreman's about to panic and a go insane
Tryin' to get the workers out of the way of the train
Engineer blowing the whistle loud and long
Can't stop a train you've got to let it roll on

Let it roll, let it roll, let it roll lord, let it roll
Engineer blowing the whistle loud and long
Can't stop a train you've got to let it roll on
