Genre: Folk

Lyrics

Railroad Mama must a knowed my name
She sent me a message through the baggage claim
The words were different but the meaning was the same
She wants me to do just what she tells me to do

Railroad Mama got a hold on me
She can make me walk, she can make me see
What she does to me is some kind of mystery
I swear I do just what she tells me to do

She says “Faster” and then she says “Slower”
And then she says “Stop” and then the lady says “Go”
She tells me I been cheatin’ but you know it just ain’t so
I swear I do just what she tells me to do

I played the part of her darlin’ child
I played the part of a boy gone wild
I played the part of a man denied I
swear I do just what she tells me to do

Railroad Mama got a hold on me
She can make me walk, she can make me see
What she does to me is some kind of mystery
I swear I do just what she tells me to do
