locomotive man (single version) lyrics – johnny cash

i got a gal in dallas, i wave at when i go through
i got a gal in tulsa, that i toot my whistle to
(say how do)
i got ’em all over the land, i’m a locomotive man

left my heart in omaha omaha, and i never did quite get it back
i got a sue in sioux city, waitin’ by the railroad track
(keeps her money in a ‘tater sack)
i got ’em all over the land, i’m a locomotive man

well, i left a little switch engine, ’bout forty miles south of bangor maine
couldn’t keep the wheels a turnin’, shouldn’t try to pull my train
i got ’em all over the land, i’m a locomotive man

well, i had a gal in jackson, and it sure broke my heart to turn her loose
when i checked my time and moved on, she’s hooked on my caboose
i got ’em all over the land, i’m a locomotive man
