    Lyrics

    Well, I got my mail late last night
    A letter from a girl who found the time to write
    To her lonesome boy somewhere in the night

    She sent me a railroad ticket too
    To take me to her loving arms and the big steel rail
    Gonna carry me home to the one I love

    Well I been out here many a long days
    I haven't found a place that I could call my own
    Not a two bit bed to lay my body on

    I been stood up I been shook down
    I bin dragged into the sand and the big steel rail
    Gonna carry me home to the one I love

    Well I been up tight most every night
    Walking along the streets of this old town
    Not a friend to tell my troubles to

    My good old car she done broke down
    'Cause I drove it into the ground and the big steel rail
    Gonna carry me home to the one I love

    Well look over yonder across the plain
    The big drive wheels a-pounding along the ground
    Gonna get on board and I'll be homeward bound

    Now I ain't had a home cooked meal
    And Lord, I need one now and the big steel rail
    Gonna carry me home to the one I love

    Now here I am with my head in the sand
    Standing on the broad highway will you give a ride
    To a lonesome boy who missed the train last night

    I went in town for one last round
    And I gambled my ticket away and the big steel rail
    Won't carry me home to the one I love
