GREENLIGHT ON THE SOUTHERN

 G
  Standing on the side track
         D            G
  At the south end of town

  On a dry, hot, dusty August day
      D
  The steam pipe blowing down
      G
  The fireman with his long oil can
  D                    G
  Oiling the old valve gears
  D                  G
  Waitin' for the fast mail train to Simmefore to clear


  The engineer in the old high cab, his gold watch in his
  hand
  Lookin' at the water glass and lettin' down the sand
  Rollin' out on the old main line and taking up the slack
  Gone today, so they say, but tomorrow he'll be back


Chorus
 G         D       G
  Oh, if I could return
           C               D
  To those boyhood days of mine
           G
  And that greenlight on the Southern
               D    G
  Southern Railroad Line


  Creeping down the rusty rails of the weed-grown branch
  line
  The section houses, grey and white by the yard limit sign
  The hoggers call, the old high-ball, no more time to wait
  Rollin' down to Birmingham with a ten car load of freight

Repeat Chorus

  The whistle screamed with a hiss of steam, the headlight
  gleams clear
  The drivers roll on the green and gold, gettin' mighty
  near
  Handing out the orders to the engine crew on time
  It's the Alabama Great Southern, AGS Railroad Line

Repeat Chorus Twice



My Disclaimer: I realize that Tony Rice wrote few songs himself; so if these 
songs are repeats of other artists, sorry about that.  Just puttin em out 
since I got em.
