Rock Island Line lyrics
Now, this here’s the story about the Rock Island Line
Well, The Rock Island line, she runs down into New Orleans
There’s a big toll gate down there
And, y’ know, if you got certain things on board
When you go through the toll gate
Well you don’t have to pay the man no toll
Well, the train driver, he pulled up to the toll gate
and The man hollered and asked him what all he had on board, and he 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 alright, boy
You don’t have to pay no toll
You can just go right on through
So, he went on through the toll gate, and as he went through
He started picking up a little bit of speed
Picking up a little bit of steam
He got on through he turned a look back to the man, he said
Well, I fooled you, I fooled you
I got pig iron, I got pig iron
I got all pig iron

Down the Rock Island Line she's a mighty good road
The Rock Island Line, it’s a road to ride
The Rock Island Line, it’s a mighty good road
Well, if you could ride you gotta ride like you find it
Get your ticket at the station called the Rock Island Line

It was cloudy in the west, and it looked like rain,
round the curve come-a passenger train.
North-bound train on the south-bound track,
You were all right a-leavin but he won’t be back

Well, the Rock Island Line she's a mighty good road
The Rock Island Line, it’s a road to ride
The Rock Island Line, it’s a mighty good road
Well, if you could ride you gotta ride like you find it
Get your ticket at the station of the Rock Island Line

well I may be right and I may be wrong
But you’re gotta miss me when I’m gone

Well, the engineer said before he died,
that There were two more drinks that he’d like to try,
The doctor said “what could they be”
“a hot cup of coffee and cold glass of tea”

Well, 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 could ride you gotta ride like you find it
Get your ticket at the station called the Rock Island Line
