She don't love me Hear em singing in the sun Payday coming when My work is all done Later in the evening When the sun is sinking low All day I been waiting For the whistle to blow Sitting in a teepee Built right on the track Rolling them bones Til the foreman come back Pick up your belongings, boys Scatter about We got an off schedule train Coming two miles out Everybody's scrambling And jumping around Picking up their money Tearing the teepee down Foreman was a panic Bout to go insane Trying to get the workers Out the way of the train Engineer blows the Whistle loud and long Can't stop the train He have to let it roll on
