  • Rail Road conductor
  • I am like a Rail Road conductor around here.
    They won't let me toot the whistle.
    They won't let me clang the bell.
    But as soon as something goes wrong.
    Guess who catches hell.

  • My Grandfather was a roadmaster, in the end on the Oregon Short line. His version was:
    I am not allowed to run the train, the whistle I can't blow.
    I am not allowed to say how far the railroad cars can go.
    I am not allowed to shoot of steam or even clang the bell.
    But let it jump the g-- da--- track then see who catches hell.
