Here's a tale of Tom who worked the railroads' run
His wife would cook his meat as he would check the wheel

Singin', poor Tom, seventh son
Always knew what's goin on

Ain't a thing that you can hide from Tom
There ain't nothing that you can hide from Tom

He worked for thirty years, sharin' hopes and fears
Dreamin' of the day he could turn and say

Poor Tom, work is gone
Lazin' out in that noonday sun

Ain't a thing that you can hide from Tom
Ain't nothing that you can hide from Tom

His wife was Emmie May and many little games she played
When Tom was out of town, she couldn't keep her dresses down

Poor Tom, seventh son
Always knew what's goin' on

Ain't a thing that you can hide from Tom
Ain't nothing that you can hide from Tom

And so it was one day people got to Ellie May
Tom took a gun in his hand and stopped all the runnin' around

Poor Tom, seventh son
Gotta die for what you've done

All those years of work are thrown away
To ease your mind, is that all you can say?
But what about that grandson on your knee?
and railroad song's promise he could be

Ain't nothing that you can hide from Tom
Ain't a thing that you can hide from Tom
Ain't a thing that you can hide from Tom
There ain't nothing that you can hide from Tom

Hey, yeah, keep a-truckin', keep a-truckin', yeah
