Bound to Ride
Chord-chart by Lynn Lewis
F / / / |C / / / |
Coming down from Tennessee, riding on the line,
C / / / |G / C /|
Thinking 'bout my lil' darlin', couldn't keep from crying.
C / / / |C / / / |
Honey babe I'm bound to ride,
G / |C / / / |
Don't you want to go?
Going to Atlanta just to look around,
If things don't suit me gonna find another town.
Riding on a streetcar, looking over the town,
Eating saltine crackers, ten cents a pound.
Working on a railroad, saving all I can,
Looking for that woman that ain't got no man.
Standing on the corner, a thousand miles from home,
Studying 'bout them good times, done past and gone.
If I die a railroad man, bury me under the ties,
So I can hear old number nine as she goes rolling by.
See that train a coming, coming round the bend,
Goodbye my little darling, I'm on my way again.
