Lyrics To Dusty Boxcar Wall

(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
(Verse 1)
I once had a true 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)
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
(Verse 2)
City women bring you grief and sorrow
Country girls are as sweet as they can be
City women are cold and they are shallow
But a country girl’s love is as deep as the deep blue sea
(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
(Instrumental)
(Verse 3)
Oh when I die and go to heaven
That’ll be the last train ride I’ll ever see
They’ll put a silver spike upon my gravestone
And my casket beneath a weeping willow tree
(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
