These lyrics are copied from, but I also checked them against a recording at Spotify and edited them a bit.

Eric Andersen
As sung by Eilen Jewell on "Letters from Sinners & Strangers" (2007)

CHORUS: Well, I'm goin' away, my baby.
I'm gonna leave you, honey, now.
Well, that train passed by when you lay sleepin'.
I'm gonna write you a letter on a dusty boxcar wall.

1. Well, the only two things a gambler needs
Are a suitcase and a trunk,
And the only time that he's satisfied
Is when he's on the drunk. CHORUS

2. I once loved a boy in Cincinnati.
I loved a boy in sunny Tennessee.
Well, a city boy will fill your heart with sadness,
But a country boy's as good as he can be. CHORUS

These are the lyrics as sung by Eric on his album "Today is the Highway"

Eric Andersen
Dusty Boxcar Wall

I'm going away my baby,
I'm gonna leave you pretty gal
For a train passed by while you lay sleeping
I'll write you a letter on a dusty boxcar wall

I once had a love in old Kentucky
I once had a love in sunny Tennessee
But a New York gal brought me pain and sadness
Now I'm here as lonely as I can be


City women bring you grief and sorrow
Country girls are as sweet as they can be
City women are as cold as they are shallow
But a country girl's love is as deep as the deep blue sea


Oh when I die and go to heaven
That'll be tha last train ride I'll ever see
They'll put a silver spike upon my gravestone
And my casket beneath a weeping willow tree
