Lyrics

This here's a story About the Rock Island Line Well, the Rock Island Line Runs from New Orleans going North The train driver pulled Up to the toll gate The man asked him what all They had on board He said, I ain't got no pig iron He said, whattaya got He said, I got livestock I got livesock, I got cows I got pigs, I got chicks I got cows, I got sheep I got mules, I got all livestock I got all livestock I got all livestock Man said, you're alright then You go on through So he went on through the tollgate And as he went through He started picking up And a little bit of speed Picking up a little bit of steam As he went through, he says Well, I fooled you, I fooled you I got pig iron, I got pig iron I got all pig iron, I got all pig iron Let's move it for him now Down the Rock Island Line Is a mighty good road Rock Island Line Is the road to ride Rock Island Line Is a mighty good road Well, if you ride You got to ride it like you find it Get your ticket at the station On the Rock Island Line Well, cloudy and lost And it looks like rain Around the curve Come a passenger train Yes, the Rock Island Line Is a mighty good road Rock Island Line Is the road to ride Rock Island Line Is a mighty good road

Well, if you ride You got to ride it like you find it Get your ticket at the station On the Rock Island Line Then she goes on North and When she crosses the Flat land of Illinois She picks up a little bit more speed Oh, a, b, c, w, x, y, z Cat's in the cupboard But he dont see me Down the Rock Island Line A mighty good road Rock Island Line Is the road to ride Rock Island Line Is a mighty good road Well, if you ride You got to ride it like you find it Get your ticket at the station On the Rock Island Line The Rock Island Line A mighty good road Rock Island Line Is the road to ride Rock Island Line Is a mighty good road Well, if you ride You got to ride it like you find it Get your ticket at the station On the Rock Island Line
