[Verse 1]
Bm                                    Bm
    Well I come in on a night train       With an arm full of box cars
Bm                                    Bm
    On the wings of a magpie              Cross a hooligan night
Bm                                    Bm
    And I busted up a chifforobe          Way out by the cocomo
Bm                                    Bm
   Cooked up a mess a mulligan            And got into a fight

[Chorus]
G7                               F#7
Whistlin' past the graveyard    Steppin on a crack
      G7                             F#7
I'm a mean motherhubbard        Papa one-eyed jack

[Verse 2]
Bm                                    Bm
    You've probably seen me sleepin     Out by the railroad tracks
Bm                                        Bm
    Go on and ask the prince of darkness    What about all that smoke come from the stack
Bm                                    Bm
    Sometimes I kill myself a jacket    suck out all the blood
Bm                                    Bm
    Steal myself a station wagon        Drive it through the mud

[Chorus]
G7                               F#7
Whistlin' past the graveyard    Steppin on a crack
      G7                             F#7
I'm a mean motherhubbard        Papa one-eyed jack

[Verse 3]
Bm                                    Bm
    I know you seen my headlights       And the honkin' of my horn
Bm                                    Bm
    I'm callin' out my bloodhounds      Chase the devil through the corn
Bm                                       Bm
    Last night I chugged the Mississippi    Now that sucker's dry as a bone
Bm                             Bm
    Born in a taxi cab     I'm never comin' home

[Chorus]
G7                               F#7
Whistlin' past the graveyard    Steppin on a crack
      G7                             F#7
I'm a mean motherhubbard        Papa one-eyed jack

[Verse 4]
Bm                                    Bm
    My eyes have seen the glory         Of the draining of the ditch
Bm                                    Bm
    I only come to baton rouge          To find myself a witch
Bm                                            Bm
    I'm-ona snatch me up a couple of 'em         every time it rains
Bm                                    Bm
    You see a locomotive prob'ly      thinkin' it's a train

[Chorus]
G7                               F#7
Whistlin' past the graveyard    Steppin on a crack
      G7                             F#7
I'm a mean motherhubbard        Papa one-eyed jack

[Verse 5]
Bm                                    Bm
    What you think is the sunshine      Is just a twinkle in my eye
Bm                                             Bm
    That ring around my fingers   it's just the 4th of July
Bm                                            Bm
    When I get a little bit lonesome    And a tear falls from my cheek
Bm                                    Bm
    There's gonna be an ocean in the mid - dle of the week

[Chorus]
G7                               F#7
Whistlin' past the graveyard    Steppin on a crack
      G7                             F#7
I'm a mean motherhubbard        Papa one-eyed jack

[Verse 6]
Bm                                    Bm
    I rode into town on a night train   with an arm full of box cars
Bm                                    Bm
    On the wings of a magpie            cross a hooligan night
Bm                                    Bm
    I'ma tear me off a rainbow  and wear it for a tie
Bm                                       Bm
    I never told the truth      so I can never tell a lie

[Chorus]
G7                               F#7
Whistlin' past the graveyard    Steppin on a crack
      G7                             F#7
I'm a mean motherhubbard        Papa one-eyed jack
