lyrics

Jackie he come knockin' at my door
Believe I seen him once before
Talkin' 'bout headin' up the line
Ride them rails, ride them rails

Scribblin' faces with ol' charcoal
Indian braves and lonely old souls
Oh mother may I come into your home?
Ride them rails, ride them rails

Jackie ain't worried 'bout makin' a dime
He ain't waitin' for quittin' time
The steel track keeps him satisfied
Ride them rails, ride them rails
Jackie ain't worried about his soul
Belongs to the devil this I know
Nobody with him, never alone
Ride them rails, ride them rails

Jackie rambled on till his bones got old
Didn't mind the weather never got cold
Died in the woods under pines I'm told
Ride them rails, ride them rails

Jackie his ghost knockin' at my door
My father seen him once before
Talkin' 'bout ridin' the hell bound train
Ride them rails, ride them rails

Jackie ain't worried 'bout makin' a dime
He ain't waitin' for quittin' time
The steel track keeps him satisfied
Ride them rails, ride them rails
Jackie ain't worried about his soul
Belongs to the devil this I know
Walkin' with demons and ridin' with ghosts
Ride them rails, ride them rails

Woah ride them rails
Ride them rails
