Andy

Come on roy! Grab on!

Roy

Where are we going, andy?

Andy

Who cares! Just don't fall off!

Haywood

I got up in the morning when my sleep was done

And i felt that cheery chattanooga sun

Then i thanked the lord above that i was still alive

And i waited for the "six-o-five"

All

Commencing in chattanooga

Haywood

And it chugga-chugga'd in and i said there you are

As i scrambled in the old box car

Then i settled back believin'

That the world was fine

I was travelin' on the southern line

All

Commencing in chattanooga

On the southern railroad line

Haywood

Now you can take your b and o

And you can take your santa fe

And you can take your old rock island line

All

And throw them all away

Haywood

And if the pennsylvania calls

Just say you want your money back

And if the new york central's on the phone

All

Tell 'em they're way off the track

Commencing in chattanooga

(commencing in chattanooga)

Commencing in chattanooga

On the southern railroad line

On the southern railroad line

Interlocutor

Thank you boys. Now, one more time!

Haywood, olen, ozie and clarence

Now you can take your b and o

Haywood, charlie, andy and eugene

And you can take your santa fe

Haywood, roy, ozie and willie

And you can take your old rock island line

All

And throw them all away

Olen

And if the pennsylvania calls

Roy

Just say you want your money back

Andy

And if the new york central's on the phone

Olen, roy and andy

Tell 'em they're way off the track

All

Commencing in chattanooga

Commencing in chattanooga

On the southern railroad line

On the southern railroad line

Haywood

Far away places! They are in my bones! I know all the states! Southeast to georgia. Down to pensacola. North to knoxville.

West to arkansas. And straight on to shreveport. I know the train schedules. When the freights leave. When they arrive. I can

Light a butt in the wind on top of a moving boxcar! I am free! I am free! I am free!

There ain't a soul can hol' me back

'cause i am just as free as air

As long as i got legs

And trains got wheels

I could arrive me anywhere

And if the lord above comes down

And asks you where the hell i am

Just answer, "no one knows

Where haywood goes"

'cause i'm a box car baby lamb

All

Commencing in chattanooga

Commencing in chattanooga

On the southern railroad line

Roy

Why's this train slowing down andy?

Andy

This train ain't supposed to stop 'til memphis.

Roy

We're a long way from memphis.
