Mike's Big Book of Songs

Race That Train - Pearl River Bridge

and so you sing
'old joe clark'
as you cross the pearl river bridge
been so long since you left tennessee
now you're wondering why you did

what is the place
you call your home?
a mail box number
and an answer-phone
who is the one
you call your own?
when i get back
he'll be gone

and so you sing 'old joe clark'...

who are these strangers
you call your neighbors?
they don't like my color
and they do me no favors
what is your reward
for all your labor?
long long hours and
louisiana wages

and so you sing 'old joe clark'...
