Rock Island Line Lyrics

ROCK ISLAND LINE (JohnnyÂ’s version)
Now this here's the story about the Rock Island Line
Now the Rock Island Line she run down into New Orleans
Just before you get into New Orleans why they got a big toll gate
Where you gotta pay the man just so much
Course,if you got certain things on board you're okay
You don't have to pay the man nothin
Right now we see a train she pull into the station
The man he stick his head out the window
And he yelled down at the man
I got pigs, I got horses, I got cows
I got sheep, I got all livestock, I got all livestock
I got all livestock
The man say, boy you okay
You go on through, you don't have to pay nothinÂ’
So the man he go on through
The train get on down away from the station a little bit why he started pickinÂ’up a little bit of steam
He started pickinÂ’ up a little bit of speed
The driver think he safely out of sight of the man so he stick his head out of the window
And he yelled back down the line at the man
Well, I fooled you, I fooled you
I got pig iron, I got pig iron
I got all pig iron, (Hey, Hey)
Now I'll tell you where I'm goinÂ’ boy

Down the Rock Island Line sheÂ’s a mighty good road
The Rock Island Line is the road to ride
The Rock Island Line sheÂ’s a mighty good road
If you ride you gotta ride her like you find her
Get your ticket at the station for the Rock Island Line

ABC WXYZ
The catÂ’son the cover but he donÂ’t see me
Down the Rock Island LinesheÂ’s a mighty good road
The Rock Island Line is the road to ride
The Rock Island Line sheÂ’s a mighty good road
If you ride you gotta ride her like you find her
Get your ticket at the station for the Rock Island Line

Well I may be right, I maybe wrong
You're gonna miss me when I'm gone
Down the Rock Island Line sheÂ’s a mighty good road
The Rock Island Line is the road to ride
The Rock Island Line sheÂ’s a mighty good road
If you ride you gotta ride her like you find her
Get your ticket at the station for the Rock Island Line
Down the Rock Island Line sheÂ’s a mighty good road
The Rock Island Line is the road to ride
The Rock Island Line sheÂ’s a mighty good road
If you ride you gotta ride her like you find her
Get your ticket at the station for the Rock Island Line
