Chorus:
I'm going away my baby,
I'm gonna leave you pretty gal
For a train passed by while you lay sleeping
I'll write you a letter on a dusty boxcar wall

I once had a love in old Kentucky
I once had a love in sunny Tennessee
But a New York gal brought me pain and sadness
Now I'm here as lonely as I can be

Chorus

City women bring you grief and sorrow
Country girls are as sweet as they can be
City women are as cold as they are shallow
But a country girl's love is as deep as the deep blue sea

Chorus

Oh when I die and go to heaven
That'll be tha last train ride I'll ever see
They'll put a silver spike upon my gravestone
And my casket beneath a weeping willow tree
