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


DUSTY BOXCAR WALL
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

Chorus:
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

Chorus

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

Chorus

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
