[Intro]
E     E     E     E  


[Chorus]
E              G#7
Railroad Bill, Railroad Bill
A                        F#
 He never worked, and he never will
        B7             C#m
I wanna ride, Railroad Bill
        B7                 E
I wanna ride, old Railroad Bill


[Verse]
E                               E
Railroad Bill was a mighty mean man
         E               A
Shot the lantern out the brakeman's hand
        B7             C#m
I wanna ride, Railroad Bill
        B7                 E
I wanna ride, old Railroad Bill


[Chorus]
E              G#7
Railroad Bill, Railroad Bill
A                        F#
 He never worked, and he never will
        B7             C#m
I wanna ride, Railroad Bill
        B7                 E
I wanna ride, old Railroad Bill


[Verse]
E                E
Railroad Bill he took my wife
   E                         A
If I'd have spoken he'd have taken my life
        B7             C#m
I wanna ride, Railroad Bill
        B7                 E
I wanna ride, old Railroad Bill


[Chorus]
E              G#7
Railroad Bill, Railroad Bill
A                        F#
 He never worked, and he never will
        B7             C#m
I wanna ride, Railroad Bill
        B7                 E
I wanna ride, old Railroad Bill


[Verse]
E                    E
Railroad Bill comin' down the hill
E                       A
 Lightin' cigars with a 10-dollar bill
        B7             C#m
I wanna ride, Railroad Bill
        B7                 E
I wanna ride, old Railroad Bill


[Chorus]
E              G#7
Railroad Bill, Railroad Bill
A                        F#
 He never worked, and he never will
        B7             C#m
I wanna ride, Railroad Bill
        B7                 E
I wanna ride, old Railroad Bill
