[Verse 1]

E7
My Grandaddy was a railroad man
                            A7     E
When I was young he took me by the hand
E7 
Dragged me to the station at the break of dawn
                                       B7        E
Said "boy I got to show you somethin' 'fore it's gone"
        A7 
She was blue and silver - she was right on time
   E                            B7    E
We rode that Texas Eagle on the Mopac line


[Verse 2]

E7 
We had some sandwiches that Granma packed
                         B7         E
We rode to Palestine and hitchhiked back
E7 
Home in time for supper with a tale to tell
                                           B7      E
That night I dreamed I heard that lonesome whistle wail
A7 
When I got old enough to take the train alone
E7                              B7  E
I rode that Texas Eagle down to San Antone


[Verse 3]

E7 
Nowadays they don't make no trains
                                       B7     E
Just the piggyback freighters and them Amtrak things
E7 
They shut the Eagle down awhile ago
                                B7  E
Sold it to the railroad down in Mexico
A7 
But every now and then that whistle's on my mind
E7                                 B7     E
I ride that Texas Eagle 'cross the borderline
