Nine Hundred Miles


(Folk song)

I am walkin’ down the track,
I’ve got tears in my eyes
Tryin’ to read a letter from my home

If that train runs me right,
I’ll be home tomorrow night
‘Cause it’s nine hundred miles where I’m goin’.
And I hate to hear that lonesome whistle blow.

2. Well the train I ride on
Is a hundred coaches long
You can hear the whistle blow a hundred miles. Refrain

3. I will pawn you my watch, I will pawn you my chain
Pawn you my gold diamond ring. Refrain
