Basic three-chord structure, wilco. If it's a problem, I'll get back soon and add chords to a few stanzas. Note that the song is on Youtube, fyi.

You can hear this recording at YouTube. Here's my transcription. Several words and phrases are different from those at 999's link.


DOWN BY THE RAILROAD TRACKS
As sung by Bradley Kincaid

I had a gal named Annabelle; she thought the world of me,
But for some cause her family and I could not agree.
Now if I called there at her house, 'twas sure to cause a fight,
And for that reason, we would take a walk each Wednesday night

Down by the railroad tracks,
Down by the railroad tracks.
We'd sit for hours and hours and hours
Down by the railroad tracks.

Some people spoon in parlor cars and some in ford sedans,
But Annabelle and I we had to make some other plans.
We couldn't use the parlor ; we had no ford you see,
And for that reason, you would see Annabelle and me

Down by the railroad tracks,
Down by the railroad tracks.
I'd hold her hand and she'd hold mine
Down by the railroad tracks.

I courted her for several months until one summer day
Her father found it out and then there was the deuce to pay.
He said: "young man, come here to me. I want a word with you!"
Where do you think I found myself when finally I came to?

Down by the railroad tracks,
Down by the railroad tracks,
That's where I lost my liberty,
Down by the railroad tracks.

We're married now and settled down with children all our own.
Across the door there hangs a sign; it says, "God Bless Our Home."
Both she and I take walks each night, but up and down the floor,
To try and get the kids to sleep, but we never walk no more

Down by the railroad tracks,
Down by the railroad tracks.
I wonder who is there tonight,
Down by the railroad tracks​?

The other night our little girl said, "Mama, tell me do!
If good girls go to heaven, do the bad girls go there too?"
"No, just good girls go to heaven, dear" the mother softly sighed.
"Then, mother, where do bad girls go?" And Annabelle replied:

"Down by the railroad tracks,
Down by the railroad tracks.
Now run and play and don't you stray
Down by the railroad tracks!"
