"Rock Island Line"

Now this here's a story about the Rock Island Line

Well the Rock Island Line she runs down into New Orleans

There's a big tollgate down there and you know

If you got certain things on board when you go through the tollgate

Well you don't have to pay the man no toll

Well a train driver he pulled up to the tollgate

And a man hollered and asked him what all he had on board and said

I got livestock I got livestock I got cows I got pigs I got sheep

I got mules I got all livestock

Well he said you're all right boy you don't have to pay no toll

You can just go right on through so he went on through the toolgate

And as he went through he started pickin' up a little bit of speed

Pickin' up a little bit of steam

He got on through he turned and looked back at the man he said

Well I fooled you I fooled you I got pigiron I got pigiron I got old pigiron



Down the Rock Island Line she's a mighty good road

Rock Island Line it's a road to ride

Rock Island Line it's a mighty good road

Well if you ride you got to ride it like you finally get your ticket

At the station for the Rock Island Line



Looked cloudy in the west and it looked like rain

Round the curve came a passenger train

North bound train on the southbound track

he's alright a leavin' but he won't be back



Well the Rock Island Line...



Oh I may be right and I may be wrong

But you gonna miss me when I'm gone

Well the engineer said before he died

There were two more drinks that he'd like to try

The conductor said what could they be

A hot cup of coffee and a cold glass of tea



Well the Rock Island Line...
