lyrics

Walking down the tracks,
I got tears in my eyes,
trying to read a letter from my home.
If this train's running me right,
I'll be home tomorrow night
because I'm nine hundred miles from my home,
and I hate to hear that lonesome whistle blow.

The train that I ride on
is one hundred coaches long.
You can hear the whistle blow a hundred miles.
If this train's running me right,
I'll be home tomorrow night
because I'm nine hundred miles from my home,
and I hate to hear that lonesome whistle blow.

I'll pawn you my watch.
I will pawn you my chain.
Pawn you my gold diamond ring.
If this train's running me right,
I'll be home tomorrow night
because I'm nine hundred miles from my home,
and I hate to hear that lonesome whistle blow
nine hundred miles away from home.

Nine hundred miles from my home,
and I hate to hear that lonesome whistle blow
nine hundred miles away from home.

If you say so,
I won't railroad no more.
Sidetrack my train and come on home.
If this train's running me right,
I'll be home tomorrow night
because I'm nine hundred miles from my home,
and I hate to hear that lonesome whistle blow
nine hundred miles away from home.
Nine hundred miles from my home,
and I hate to hear that lonesome whistle blow
nine hundred miles away from home.
Nine hundred miles...
