Now, this here's the story about the Rock Island Line While 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 Where you don't have to pay the man all toll Well, the train driver, he pulled up to the toll gate The man only asked him what 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 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 is a mighty good road The Rock Island Line, it's the road to ride The Rock Island Line, it's a mighty good road Well, if you want to ride you gotta ride like you find it Get your ticket at the station of the Rock Island Line It was cloudy in the west, looked like rain, But round the corner come-a passenger train. North-bound train on the south-bound track, You were all right a-leavin but you won't be back Well, the Rock Island Line is a mighty good road The Rock Island Line, it's the road to ride The Rock Island Line, it's a mighty good road Well, if you want to ride you gotta ride like you find it Get your ticket at the station of the Rock Island Line Now I may be right and I may be wrong But you're gonna miss me when I'm gone Well, the engineer said before he died, There were two more drinks he'd like to have tried, The doctor asked him "what could they be?" He said "a hot cup of coffee and cold glass of tea" Well, the Rock Island Line is a mighty good road The Rock Island Line, it's the road to ride The Rock Island Line, it's a mighty good road Well, if you want to ride you gotta ride like you find it Get your ticket at the station of the Rock Island Line
