      About "Railroad Lady"

      Lyrics for Jimmy Buffett - "Railroad Lady"

      She's a railroad lady
      Just a little bit shady
      Spending her days on the train
      She's a semi-good looker
      The fast rails they took 'er
      Now she's tryin', just tryin' to get home again.

      South Station on Boston to the stockyards of Austin
      From the Florida sunshine to the New Orlean's rain
      Now that the railpacks
      Has taken the best tracks
      She's tryin', just tryin' to get home again.

      She's a railroad lady
      Just a little bit shady
      Spending her life on the trains
      Once a pullman car traveler
      Now the brakeman won't have 'er
      She's tryin', just tryin' to get home again.

      Once a high balling loner he thought he could own 'er
      He bought her a fur and a big diamond ring
      She hocked them for cold cash
      Left town on the Wabash
      Never thinking of home way back then.

      But the rails are now rusty
      The dining car's dusty
      The gold plated watches have taken their toll
      The railroads are dying
      And the lady she's crying
      On a bus to Kentucky and home that's her goal.

      She's a railroad lady
      Just a little bit shaky
      Spending her life on the train
      She's a semi-good looker
      But the fast rails the took 'er
      Now she' tryin', just tryin' to get home again.
