Ride This Train (Part 6) (Cash Johnny)

Ride this train to any country fair in this land now here's a hard working happy people Mrs Jones baked the finest pie for the contest this year And Mr Brown's got the biggest fattest old sow you ever saw And all the kids are eatin' popcorn and cotton candy This is Chester South Carolina and that year at the fair My papa brought us all down in a wagon And on the way down we picked up another family that lived up the creek I was just a little boy but I remember I kept askin' papa How much farther is it how much farther is it We had a young haffa tied to the wagon that papa just knew Was gonna take first prize I didn't have no doubt about that haffa winning first prize But the main thing I was interested in Was somethin' else papa had under his seat at the front of the wagon And that was an old dobro that I thought papa played like nobody else in the world I guess by real musical standards papa didn't know much about music But I tell you that night at the fair when he played in the dance band I just had to stay awake sat up there and listen to papa play the dobro
