But i'm down here on this track
Not a shirt upon my back
I will send you this ?ailin? that i own
Yes i ?plead? the mails i took
Put 'em down ways on the brook
Lord i'm 900 miles from my home.

If my old lady she says so
I'll railroad no more
Down track this engine back to roam
Yes i give in my call
I'll gladly give in it all
'Cause i'm 900 miles from my home.

If i get down by the dine
And the river still does run
They say everything i see turn to ?pawn?
Even down by this ocean side
She don't always just a-pain my bride
'Cause i'm 900 miles from my home.

Oh Mary don't you moan
Don't you weep all a ?brown?
Oh Mary don't you weep and don't you moan
If i get myself in line
I will be there in due time
'Cause i'm 900 miles from my home.  up
