by Boxcar Willie. I don't know how to post the video but here are the lyrics. From A Rolls To The Rails
Written and recorded by Boxcar Willie

G C G
Once he lived like a king and he had everything
D7
All the world they say laid at his feet
G C G
Yet with all his wealth and fame he played that cheatin’ game
D7 G
And he wound up like a tramp on the street

C G
He went from a Rolls to the rail from a mansion to dirty jails
D7
From a penthouse to the jungle by the track
G C G
From champagne to cheap wine right down to his last dime
D7 G
And now all he owns is the cloths on his back

C G
He drove a big fancy car and he smoked big cigars
D7
Had everything that a man could own
G C G
But wild women and song soon his money was all gone
D7 G
And now he rides in a boxcar alone

Repeat #2
