Versión original

I was born in Dixie in a boomer shack,
Just a little shanty by the railroad track.
The humming of the drivers was my lullaby
And a freight train whistle taught me how to cry.

I got the freight train blues,
Lawdy, Lawdy, Lawdy,
Got them in the bottom of my ramblin' shoes,
And when the whistle blows, I gotta go.
Oh! Lawdy! Guess I'm never gonna lose
The freight train blues.


My daddy was a fireman and my mammy dear
Was the only daughter of an engineer.
My sweetie is a brakeman, and it ain't no joke,
It's a shame the way she keeps a good man broke.

Aeroplanes and autos always leave me cold,
The moaning of a steamboat never stirs my soul.
The only thing that makes me want to navigate
Is a wildcat whistle on a southbound freight.

I know I'm old enough to quit this running 'round,
I've tried a hundred times to stop and settle down.
But every time I find a place I'd like to stay,
I hear a freight train holler, and I'm on my way.

Versión de Bob Dylan

I was born in Dixie in a boomer shack,
Just a little shanty by the railroad track.
Freight train whistle taught me how to cry,
Hummin' of the drivers was my lullaby.

I got the freight train blues,
Oh Lordy, mama, I got 'em in the bottom of my ramblin' shoes.
And when the whistle blows I gotta go,
Baby, don't you know,
Well it looks like I'm never gonna lose
The freight train blues.


Well, my daddy was a fireman and my mama here
She was the only daughter of an engineer.
My sweetie was a brakeman, and it ain't no joke,
Shame the way she keeps a good man broke.

Well -- the only thing that makes me laugh again
Is a southbound whistle on a southbound train;
Every place I wanna go
I never can go because you know
I got the freight train blues,
Oh Lordy, mama, I got 'em in the bottom of my ramblin' shoes.
