    Rollin'
    words and music by Mark Maysey


    twenty second car from union triple nine
    twenty second car from Union triple nine
    by o’ dark thirty we’ll be rollin’ on down the line

    (chorus)
    rollin’ rollin’ rollin’ on down the line
    rollin’ rollin’ rollin’ on down the line
    gotta a brown eyed baby and a half a jug of wine
    as I’m rollin' rollin’ rollin’ on down the line

    boxcar door stuck wide open in the wind
    boxcar door stuck wide open in the wind
    tried to jump another, but it’s door wouldn’t give

    (repeat chorus)

    moonless night, stars are shining bright
    moonless night, stars are shining bright
    rhythm of the rails got me feelin’ nice

    (repeat chorus)

    carolina pines always smell the same
    carolina pines always smell the same
    it’s a sweet sensation that’ll never leave my brain

    (repeat chorus)

    a bull cook billy headin’ down to Charlotte way
    a bull cook billy headin’ down to Charlotte way
    he gotta get home cause his mother passed away

    (repeat chorus)

    Catarina Lopez sippin’ on a bottle of gin
    Catarina Lopez sippin’ on a bottle of gin
    she got a lotta troubles and they never seem to end
