lyrics

You can wash my jumpers, starch my overalls
Catch that train they call the cannonball
From Buffalo to Washington

Listen to the that train, comin' on down the line
Tryin' to make up for all of its lost time
From Buffalo to Washington

Now I'm cryin' 'cause she's gone
Feel like I'm dyin' 'cause she's gone
Solid gone

Listen to that train, comin' on down the track
Carry me away but it ain't gonna carry me back
From Buffalo to Washington

Oh my baby left me, she even took my shoes
It's enough to give a man those doggone walkin' blues
From Buffalo to Washington

Now I'm cryin' 'cause she's gone
Feel like I'm dyin' 'cause she's gone
Solid gone

Well I'm goin' up north, I'm goin' up north this fall
If my luck don't change I won't be back at all
From Buffalo to Washington

You can wash my jumpers, starch my overalls
Catch that train they call the cannonball
From Buffalo to Washington

Now I'm cryin' 'cause she's gone
Feel like I'm dyin' 'cause she's gone
Solid gone

Tin Cup Rattlers Chattanooga, Tennessee

Jeff and Marcy Paulson of the Tin Cup Rattlers love sharing old-time ballads, gospels, and folksongs in the tradition of their home in Southeast Tennessee. Their blend of clawhammer banjo, old-time harmonica, and mountain singing is original, yet demonstrates compelling reverence for tradition. This duo is drawn to time-honored tunes and their love for the music is infectious. ... more
