Chambers, Kasey - Railroad Lyrics

Your mother don't cry
Your daddy don't go
The spies don't let the government know
The water don't rise
Living on the railroad
Your brother don't lie
Your lover don't cheat
The ground wont fall
From under your feet and the wind don't blow
Livin on the railroad

Living on the railroad, living on the railroad

Your colour don't fade
Your sorrow don't show
The shadow don't follow wherever you go
The butter don't melt livin' on the railroad
Your cards don't lose
Your brakes don't fail
The rain comes down to cover your trail
But the wind don't blow living on the railroad

Living on the railroad, living on the railroad
Living on the railroad, living on the railroad

Thunder, lightening,
Stealing, fighting
Crashing, cryin, breakin', dyin',
Failing, fallin', lyin'
These are the things I never see

Living on the railroad, living on the railroad
Living on the railroad, living on the railroad.....

    Kasey Chambers was my childhood, I grew up listening to these songs, and hearing the familiar riffs and lyrics feel me with nostalgia.

    Mitchy Babe

    Cynth same!

  10. Zac Cahill

    I'm sure this is a good song but Soul Asylum sang Runaway train much better.

    Not a cover song at all, for starters, different lyrics

  11. Arjen Treurniet

    Beautiful song! Isn't that Buddy Miller on guitar and backing vocals? I seem to recognize him, but I am not sure

  22. Flickie kids

  23. Timothy Wray

    @kaysangle who said she was chubby? she looks ok to me.

  24. foxrebel368

    Love this song!! Keen to see her in Tamworth In Jan!! YEEHAH!!!!

  25. kaysie cannon

    the reason she chubby people is because she got kids. but yes she is happy with herself clearly or she would have done something bout it. dont jusge a book by its cover u would be quite suprised bout who is actually beautiful on the inside and way nicer then the people who actually judge.

  26. dazbot11

    you tell em kasey!.

  27. upinsmoke656

    kasey's mint as....... ive liked her since she started singing. and she's a beautiful lady with a beautiful voice.......

  28. Pinky Malin

    Everyone is beautiful in their own unique way. I say she's beautiful.

  29. Pinky Malin

    @aussiielady4lyf IKR?! A lot of phenominal singers aren't recognized merely because they "guly" or whatever. In my mind everyone's beutiful in their own special way. Everyone looked one was or the exact same.. be pretty damn boring I'd say.

  30. TARH8R

    @likefred02 rkn she looks better in i still pray

  31. upinsmoke656

    @rogerson61 ugly she's far from it.......

  32. Timothy Wray

  33. christian Gonsalves

  34. hobochlobo
