  Live, Gerde's Folk City, NYC - 19.sep.1961  

In nineteen and ten I started to roam,
Out in the West, no money, no home.
I went rolling along with the tide
I found myself on the Great Divide.

Railroading on the Great Divide,
Nothing around me but Rockies and sky.
There you'll find me as years go by
Railroading on the Great Divide.

A skinny oldtimer from old Cheyenne
Railroading Wyoming, the best in the land.
The long steel rail, that short cross-tie
I laid across the Great Divide.

And it's railroading on the Great Divide,
Nothing around me but Rockies and sky.
There you'll find me as years go by
Railroading on the Great Divide.

I rumbled and rambled all over your land
From old California to the New York island
And ??? she's drawin' with pride
She's a-rollin' on nation on the Great Divide.

And it's railroading on the Great Divide,
Nothing around me but Rockies and sky.
There you'll find me as years go by
Railroading on the Great Divide.  up
