Rock Island Line
Traditional - Lead Belly

(spoken: That Rock Island Line train out of New Orleans
Coming back this a-way
That depot agent gonna throw
That switch board over the track
That mean that Rock Island Line train’s got to go in a hole
That man don’t wanna stop that train
He gonna talk to the depot agent with his whistle
And this is what he gonna tell him)

I got cows, I got horses, I got hogs, I got sheeps, I got goats,
I got all live stock, I got all live stock

(spoken: That depot agent gonna let that train go by
When that Rock Island Line train get by
That man wanna talk about to the depot agent with his whistle
And this is what he’s goin’ to tell him)

I thank you (3)

(spoken: Now the Rock Island Line train is gettin’ on down the road)

  Oh, the Rock Island Line is a mighty good road
  Oh, the Rock Island Line is a road to ride
  Oh, the Rock Island Line is a mighty good road
  If you want to ride it got to ride it like you find it
  Get your ticket at the station at the Rock Island Line

Jesus died to save our sins
Glory to God, we’re gonna meet him again

I may be right and I may be wrong
You’re gwine-a miss me when I’m gone

ABC double XYZ
Cats in the cupboard, but they don’t see me

I said: we have engineermen, firemen, too
We got pullman porters and brakemen, too

The train got to Memphis just on time
I made it back to Little Rock at 8:49
