Flatt And Scruggs Lyrics

East Bound Train Lyrics
The east bound train was crowded one cold December day

The conductor shouted pitty in his old time fashioned way

A little girl in sadness her hair as bright as gold

She said I have no ticket and then her story told

My father he's in prison he's lost his sight they say

I'm going for his pardon this cold December day

[ ac.guitar ]

My mother's daily sowing to try to earn her bread

My poor dear old blind papa's in prison almost dead

The conductor could not answer he could not make reply

While taking his blowing wiping the teardrops from his eyes

He said God bless you little one just stay right where you are

You'll never need a ticket while I am on this far
