"Working for the MTA" as written by and Justin Townes Earle....
Well, it's cold in them tunnels today
Well, it's cold in them tunnels today
It's cold down in those tunnels today, mama, workin' for the MTA

I run that six-line train
I run a six-line train
I run a six-line train clear from Brooklyn Bridge to Pelham Bay

I'm the son of a railroad man
I'm the son of a railroad man
I'm the son of a railroad man, born and raised back in south Louisian'

This ain't my daddy's train
This ain't my daddy's train
This ain't my daddy's train, mama, I ain't seen the sun in days

Yeah, them hard times are goin' around
Hard times are goin' around
Hard times are goin' around, bringin' hard luck on New York town

But I'm bankin' on the ATE
Bankin' on the ATE
I'm bankin' on the ATE, brother, Georgie's gonna see me free

So, it's cold in them tunnels today
Well, it's cold in them tunnels today
It's cold down in those tunnels today, mama, workin' for the MTA
Yeah, I'm workin' for the MTA
