Old 97's - Iron Road Lyrics

  • Why I never had a family
  • Why I couldn't settle down
  • Why I'd sooner in the mirror see a hobo lookin' low
  • But the reasons now escape me as I walk the iron road
  • Like a lot of kids I left my boyhood home
  • Worked a little on the railroad, Worked a little travelin' on
  • Til the closest that I ever got to an address or a phone
  • Was the day I spent my last two bits on a one page letter home
  • At 21 my arches lay down flat
  • 22 I started takin' loans
  • But if the train will come I'll wipe the box car dirt from off my bones
  • And I'll curse the wheels that roll me, roll me down that iron road
  • Iron road, iron road, you'll never give up the gold
  • I spent 24 hours today lookin' back and feelin' low
  • 24 hours of lookin' back can kill you, I've been told
  • At 60 my dad left that boyhood town
  • Within a year our mother followed him to higher ground
  • And I'll be next to join 'em soon as I see that engine roll
  • Gonna lay my head on the railroad bed and leave that iron road (2x)
  • (Repeat v.3)
