Track Name: Brownsville, TN
Born under a bad sign in Brownsvile, Tennessee
The Atlanta Special took him to his true home in the penitentiary
"Don't get too tough, boy, one kill won't lay them dead"
I laid my head on the IC track, heard that train a coming and I pulled it right back
I heard that whistle blowing like a death bell in the wind
Got to move, got to move, gotta blow away my sins

34 has done for me more than any man will ever know
I look down and I want back my citizen clothes
Don't you blame me, mama, if I'm talking out of my head
If Captain Jack would turn his back I'd write my name in lead
Was a dead cat on the line, the express was not on time
Special agent caught me out and I could not jump the blinds

Then he knew that he had been a fish
With slippery white belly caught tight in his own hands
Cheryl Lee sure could shift the gears
With an Elgin movement from her head down to her shoes
Sure knew how to make those bed springs move
He went to see the District Attorney
Said "She stole my cash off me when I was asleep"
Shifting gears and burning bad gasoline
Downtown women sicin' them dogs on me
Gonna leave this town, if I had my away I'd tear the whole thing down

34 has done for me more than any man will ever know
I look down and I want back my citizen clothes
Don't you blame me mama if I'm talking out of my head
If Captain Jack was here today I'd write my name in lead
I laid my head on the IC track
Heard that train a' coming and I did not pull it back
I heard that whistle blowing like a death bell in the wind
And it moved and it moved, sure enough it blew away my
