The Flying Crow

This song is by Black Ivory King and appears on the compilation Lonesome Whistle: An Anthology of American Railroad Song (2012).

Flying Crow leave Port Arthur, why they come in Shreveport to change their crew
Flying Crow leave Port Arthur, why they come in Shreveport to change their crew
They'll take water in Texarkana, and for Ashtown they'll keep on through

Twenty‑five minutes from evening on, for a cup of coffee and a slice of cake
Twenty‑five minutes from evening on, for a cup of coffee and a slice of cake
Flying Crow is heading for Kansas City, and boy she just won't wait

Yon she's gone she's gone, with a red and green light behind
She's gone she's gone, with a red and green light behind
Well now the red mean trouble, and the green means a rambling mind

Well I hate to hear, that old fireman when he tones the bell
Oh ring a long time
