Side Line Woman
Words by Woody Guthrie, Music by Jimmy LaFave

I’m gonna tell you a nice little blues
I got a main stem mama and a side line, too!

CHORUS
            I got a side line woman!
            I got a side line woman!
            I got a side line woman!
            And a main stem mama too!

I rode the main stem to the end of her line
Switch over my side line and ride all night!

(Chorus)

She blows my whistle and she toots my horn
The switchingest woman that ever was born!

(Chorus)

It takes a river to roll and a bronc to pitch
It takes a side line woman just to throw my switch!

(Chorus)

I rode the side line track till the break of day
Got back on the main and ride the same old way!

(Chorus)
