Thread Name: Origins: Railroad Bill
Subject: RE: Help: Railroad Bill
A few stanzas I have heard here & there that are in none of the above:

Railroad Bill, standing on a hill,

Lighting a cigar with a ten-dollar bill.

Railroad Bill, he took my wife,

Said if I didn't like it he would take my life.

Railroad Bill ran his train so fast,

Couldn't see the postes as they passed.
