Railroad Bill
Traditional

Railroad Bill, Railroad Bill
He never worked and he never will
   It’s right, right, right

Railroad Bill was a mighty bad man
Shot the light out the brakman’s hand
   It’s right, right, right

Railroad Bill cut a mighty dash
Shot McMillian by a lightnin’ flash
   It’s right, right, right

Miss McMillian, she whooped and squalled:
That’s my husband, for I heard him fall
   It’s right, right, right

I went down on number* one
Railroad Bill had just begun
   It’s right, right, right

I come back on number two
Railroad Bill had just got through
   It’s right, right, right

And just as I caught ol’ number four
Somebody let fly with a fourty-four
   It’s right, right, right

I come back on number five
Gonna get him dead or alive
   It’s right, right, right

Railroad Bill was a mighty sport
Shot all the buttons off the sheriffs coat
   It’s right, right, right

Railroad Bill, goin’ down the hill
Lightnin’ cigars with a  ten-dollar bill
   It’s right, right, right

Railroad Bill said before he died
He would build a railroad for the bums to ride
  Ride, ride, ride, ride
