BOOMER’S STORY – Carson Robison

Come and gather all around me
Listen to my tale of woe
Got some good advice to give you
Lots of things you oughta know

Take a tip from one who’s travelled
And never stopped rambling round
Once you get that roaming fever
You never want to settle down

Met a little gal in Frisco
I asked her to be my wife
Told her I was tired of roaming
Gonna settle down for life

Then I heard the whistle blowing
And I knew it was a red ball train
I left that gal beside the railroad
And never saw that gal again

Saw that gal again
I never saw that gal again
I left that gal beside the railroad
and I never saw that gal again

Travelled all over the country
I travelled everywhere
Been on every branch line railroad
Never paid a nickel fare

Been from Maine to Californee
Canada to Mexico
I never tried to save no money
And now I got no place to go

Listen to a Boomer’s story
Pay attention to what I say
I hear another train coming
Guess I’ll be on my way

If you wanna do me a favor
When I lay me down and die
Just dig my grave beside the railroad
So I can hear the trains go by

Hear the trains go
I can hear the trains go by
Just dig my grave beside the railroad
So I can hear the trains go by
