​Cross-Tie Walker

This song is by Creedence Clearwater Revival and appears on the album Green River (1969).

I went down to the station
Just to take a ride.
I went down to the station
Just to take a ride.
Found myself on a flat-car
Yesterday behind.

Pullin' out from the platform,
There was no brass band.
I pulled out from the platform;
Nobody raised a hand.
And there were no tears of regret
From my runaway train,
Train, train, train, train.

Got no sand in my pocket,
You know, I ain't tied down.
Ain't no sand in my pocket,
Never do sit down.
I'm just a cross-tie walker
Where the freight trains run,
Run, run, run, run.

If you see me a-comin',
Don't you waste my time.
If you see me a-comin',
Don't you waste my time.
'Cause there's more miles between us
Than the Santa Fe Line.
Run, run, run, run.
