  DYLAN/CASH recording session, Nashville TN - 18.feb.1969, BS Vol. 15 version  

--- excerpt only on BS Vol. 15 ---

... land an' waters, waitin' for a train
Down some ... 

Sleepin' in the rain
I walked up to the brakeman
Just to give him a line of talk
He said if you got money
I'll see that you don't walk

Haven't got a nickel
Not a penny can i show
Get off, get off you railroad bum
An' he slammed past my door

Yodle-hee-ho, yodle-hee-he ...

--- at 59' on BS Vol. 15 ---

Where was you mama
When the train passed your shed?
Where was you mama
When the train passed your shed?
Standin' in my frontdoor
Wishin' to the good lord I was dead.

Yodle-hee, yodle-hee, yodle-hee
Yodle one time for me, Bob
Yodle-hee, yodle-hee, yodle-hee.

I get my breakfast here
I get my dinner down in New Orleans
I get my breakfast here
Get my dinner down in New Orleans (Or down in Birmingham)
Gonna get me a mama
Lord, I ain't never seen.

Yodle-hee, yodle-hee, yodle-hee.

I'd rather drink muddy water
Sleep in a holler log
I'd rather drink muddy water
Sleep in a holler log
Than to stay in Atlanta
Treated like a dirty dog.

Yodle-hee, yodle-hee, yodle-hee.

If your house catches fire
And there ain't no water 'round
If your house catches fire
And there ain't no water 'round
Throw my trunk out the window
Let the house burn on down.

Dylan: I'd like to do it another time. Cash: Okay!   up
