Railroad Bill, Railroad Bill
He never worked, and he never will,
And it’s ride, ride, ride.

Railroad Bill, he ain’t so bad,
Killed his momma, shot a round in his dad
Ride old Railroad Bill.

Railroad Bill done took my wife.
If I’d said a word, he’d have taken my life
And it’s Ride old Railroad Bill.

Railroad Bill he was coming down the hill
Lighting cigars with a ten dollar bill
Ride old Railroad Bill

Ten policemen, all dressed in black,
Coming out of nowhere, walking down the tracks,
And they’re looking for Railroad Bill

Railroad Bill, coming round the fence
Robbing a passenger train for 16 cents
I’m gonna ride old Railroad Bill

Railroad Bill got in a gambling game
Shot a man down, though he was to blame
When you lose your mind, just let it loose

Got a great long pistol, ’bout as long as your arm,
I’m gonna shoot everybody ever done me harm
And it’s ride, Bill, ride.

Got a .38 special on a .45 frame.
How can I miss when I got dead aim
Ride, ride, ride.

Gonna drink my whiskey, gonna drink it in the wind
The doctor said it’d kill me, but he didn’t say when,
And it’s ride Old Railroad Bill

Going up on the mountain, going out west.
Thirty eight special sticking out of my vest.
Ride, ride Bill Ride.

Railroad Bill, Railroad Bill
He never worked, and he never will,
Ride, ride, ride.
