New Railroad lyrics

New Railroad

Working on a new railroad
Mud up to my knees
Working on a new railroad
Mud up to my knees
I'm working for big John Henry
And he's so hard to please
I've been all around this world

Used to have a big gray horse
Arrow was his name
Used to have a big gray horse
Arrow was his name
They caught me making liquor
And they told me get off their claim
I've been all around this world

Hang me, oh Hang me
I'll be dead and gone
Hang me, oh Hang me
I'll be dead and gone
It's not the hanging that I mind
It's the laying in the grave so long
I've been all around this world

Single girl, single girl
Go spend your days in town
Single girl, single girl
Go spend your days in town
Just wait 'til you get married
You'll work 'til the sun goes down
I've been all around this world

Lulu, oh Lulu
Won't you open up that door
Lulu, oh Lulu
Won't you open up that door
Before I come and open it
with my old forty-four
I've been all around this world

Digging on a new railroad
Mud up to my knees
Digging on a new railroad
Mud up to my knees
I'm digging for big John Henry
And he's so hard to please
I've been all around this world

I've been all around this world
I've been all around this world
