FIRST TRAIN HEADING SOUTH
(J. Horton)
JOHNNY HORTON (COLUMBIA 63455, 1959)

I didn't know my baby love me so
Until that letter come to let me know
I'll pack my bags and then I'll go
And catch the first train I see headin' south

If I'd a-got this letter in Idaho
With snow so deep it wouldn't let me go
I'd a-been hog wild and melted all that snow
And caught the first train I saw headin' south

If I'd a-got this letter in Iowae
Nothin' in this world could make me stay
I'd a-grabbed my hat and then been on my way
And caught the first train I saw headin' south

I didn't know my baby love me so
Until that letter come to let me know
I'll pack my bags and then I'll go
And catch the first train I see headin' south

I didn't know my baby love me so
Until that letter come to let me know
I'll pack my bags and then I'll go
And catch the first train I see headin' south

If I'd a-got this letter in Ohio
With a busted back, two arms and a broken toe
There'd be no hesitation, I would go
And catch the first train I saw headin' south

But I got this letter up in Maine
You bet your bottom dollar I feel the same
The clickety-clack of the drivers call her name
As I ride this fast train I caught headin' south

I didn't know my baby love me so
Until that letter come to let me know
I'll pack my bags and then I'll go
And catch the first train I see headin' south
