Words & Music: Rattlesnake Annie

Lay Me a Rail for the Road

Lay me a rail for the road
You know I’m carrying a heavy load
This old train keeps on a rollin’
Where she stops lord only knows
So won’t you lay me a rail for the road

Daddy was a flat land farmer down in Tennessee
Mama she loved Jesus we were happy as could be
Working out in that tobacco patch when the summer sun laid low
I seen them wild geese flying’, callin’ hey come on lets go

I rolled on down to Texas crossed the silver Rio Grande
And I laid my body down with a rambling’ Texas man
He gave to me a golden ring and a blanket from the cold
I said sweet love you’ve got my heart but the Gypsy stole my soul
