Bound To Ride
Banjo Pickers Songbook <G>?
Flatt & Scruggs <A> ish!
Ralph Stanley <B> ish!
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
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
