Kathy Muir - Ride These Times Lyrics

  • Verse
  • Jimmy had a thing ‘bout playing by the train tracks
  • He’d sneak out of the house, and down the old dirt path
  • Then underneath the bridge and over the horizon’s morning sunshine
  • A sparkle in his eyes when Jimmy saw the rail yard
  • He’d been coming here for years, hiding from the rail guards
  • Who’d catch the freight hoppers trying to ride the rail trains
  • Heading south to work in coal yards at twenty five cents an hour
  • Chorus
  • They were going nowhere fast
  • Times were tough and meant to last for no one knew how long
  • So get out-of-state find yourself a Forty-Eight
  • And ride the line taking work at any town that gave it out
  • Do the best that you can
  • And ride these times 'til you’re getting through nowhere
  • Verse
  • Now a young man Jimmy had wanderlust
  • So he rode the freight trains; grainers and gondolas
  • Reeking of coal, pine tar and creosote
  • But eventually he tired from sleeping in boxcars and cotton gins
  • Chorus
  • Was he going nowhere fast
  • Times were tough and meant to last for no one knew how long
  • So get out-of-state find yourself a Forty-Eight
  • And ride the line taking work at any town that gave it out
  • Do the best that you can
  • And ride these times 'cause you’re getting through nowhere
  • Verse
  • Jim still had a thing ‘bout going to the rail yard
  • He found his old seat and looked out at the boxcars
  • Rusted over time, covered with autumn vines
  • And as the leaves would turn from green to brown, it was all a moment in time
  • Chorus
  • When he was going nowhere fast,
  • Times were tough and then they passed but as he grew
  • The war would have its way, how he missed those Forty-Eights
  • And ride the line, taking work at any town that gave it out
  • Doin’ the best that he could, he rode those times and made it through
  • Yeah, he rode those times and made it through
  • Nowhere, nowhere, nowhere
