lyrics

I had a dream the other night
I dreamed I was with my darling
And when I woke, I found it not so
And I started looking for her
Oh that girl, oh that sweet girl, She rode on the railroad with me
Oh that girl, oh that sweet girl, She rode on the railroad with me

I rode till I came to her father’s hall
And there I enquired for her
He answered me, there’s none such here
And he’d set my heart on fire
Oh that girl, oh that sweet girl, She rode on the railroad with me
Oh that girl, oh that sweet girl, She rode on the railroad with me

I stood awhile all in a maze
A viewing the lonely window
My passion flew, my sword I drew
But there's locks and bolts to hinder
Oh that girl, oh that sweet girl, She rode on the railroad with me
Oh that girl, oh that sweet girl, She rode on the railroad with me

The locks and bolts were knocked away
And I caused the locks for to shatter
Come all you who have sweethearts
You must fight till you’ve gained their freedom
Oh that girl, oh that sweet girl, She rode on the railroad with me
Oh that girl, oh that sweet girl, She rode on the railroad with me
Oh that girl, oh that sweet girl, She rode on the railroad with me
Come all you who have sweet hearts
you must fight till you’ve gained their freedom
