Das Sehnsuchtsziel Alabama:
Railroad man, Oh, mister railroad man,
Tell me 'bout the trains that go to Alabam'.
Here's my fare, now kindly take me where
I can get a whiff of good old Dixie air.
Take me down to some plantation town,
Where the folks are never known to wear a frown,
To the land that's made for me,
Come, let's go! I want to be:
Where they'll welcome me home;
Never more will I roam,
From that old log cabin of mine,
Where the sun is mighty glad because it can shine;
Where I'm longing to be
For it's the land of hospitality,
I'm on my way,
Say! This very day,
I'm goin' to hit the trail for Alabam'.
Engineer, Oh, mister engineer,
Blow your whistle 'cause it's music to my ear;
Dont delay, those engines seem to say:
"Let's begin this happy journey right away".
Give her coal, Oh, fireman, bless your soul,
Give her lots of juice to make those big wheels roll,
That's the signal "Clear the track",
Doggone, boys, I'll soon be back:
