Railroad Angel
Lyrics
I'm a Railroad Angel Baby
Earned my wings riding the rod
Railroad men and women
Got their own special God
The next station is a-callin'
And riding is my fate
Engineers and brakemen
Are my only soul-mates

I'm a Railroad Angel Baby
You ain't seen nothing like me yet
A ride with me is something
You never will forget
It may be hard and fast
May be easy and slow
Either way I'll take you
To a place you never thought you'd go

When I was a child the railroad captured my soul
Now I take it with me everywhere I go

I'm a Railroad Angel Baby
I only ride first class
Drink my champagne from a bottle
My whiskey from a glass
Got a 38-special
And a license to kill
If you ever do me wrong
I'll use them baby I will

I'm a Railroad Angel Baby
Not too many around
There's always one more looking
For a train that's glory bound
Take my advice girls
One day you'll be glad
It's better to be wanted
Than it is to be had
