Jimmy McCown, a superb player of the five and six string banjos, sings it on his website.

This is my transcription:

CHERRY RIVER LINE

Well it's Lonesome down here
It's lonesome all the time
It's lonesome down here
On this Cherry River line

Told my little girl
Told her all I can
I'll find me another woman
You can get you another man

Now she's gone away
She left me here to leave
Some other runner's daughter
On a bed of ?

Where'd you get those high-top shoes
And the dress you wear so fine
I got the shoes from a railroad man
And the dress from a driver in the mine

Well it's Lonesome down here
It's lonesome all the time
It's lonesome down here
On this Cherry River line

Ray
