"The Train Carrying Jimmie Rodgers Home"
Come along, my dear, the time is growin' near,
We'll have to walk down where the field is overgrown.
Consumption has claimed his life and
we dare not miss the sight,
Of the train carrying Jimmie Rodgers home.
Well, we had some hard times these last few years,
Lost the farm, almost lost our spirits, too.
Yeah, but it's the strangest thing;
when we heard that man sing,
Oh, we knew somehow we'd make it through.
I can hear that whistle blow; that old train is rollin' slow,
Sounds like it's cryin' for the singin' brakeman, too.
Back to the sunny south he'll go, and he'll never roam no more,
Here's the train, oh hold me close, oh sweetheart do.
Come here my little fella and let me hold you up.
I want you to remember this day when you're grown.
How your mama and your dad were so proud and so sad,
Watchin' the train carrying Jimmie Rodgers home.
There goes the train carrying Jimmie Rodgers home. Oh-de-loh (yodel)

Hi, Open Mike - whenever you post lyrics, it's a good idea to tell us all you know about the song - particularly the songwriter name, and where you got the lyrics. If there is an existing thread on the song, the lyrics should be posted there instead of in a new thread.
There is no need to start an ADD thread to post lyrics if there is an existing request or other thread discussion the songs. If DOES help to put ADD and the song title in the particular message where the lyrics are posted.
In the standard Digital Tradition format (explained in the FAQ), the title should be in ALL CAPS in the first line, followed by the (songwriter name in parentheses) on the second line, then skip a line, and then post the lyrics, with a line skipped between stanzas.
Please conduct further discussion here.
