Bound To Ride




Banjo Pickers Songbook <G>?

Flatt & Scruggs <A> ish!

Ralph Stanley <B> ish!


Coming down from Tennessee riding on the line
Studying ‘bout the girl of mine couldn't keep from crying

Honey babe I'm bound to ride
Don't you want to go

Going down to Atlanta just too look around

Then if things don’t suit me, I’ll find another town

Working on a railroad, saving all I can
Looking for that woman ain't got no man

If I die a railroad man bury me ‘neath the ties
So I can see old number nine as she goes rolling by

See that train a coming round the bend
Goodbye my little darling I'm on my way again

(Riding on a streetcar looking o'er the town
Eating saltine crackers ten cents a pound) alt verse 2
