Rock Island Line

Lonnie Donegan

 D
I got sheep, I got cows
I got horses, I got pigs
I got aaalll livestock

Spoken:
So the man say, why he say: "you can go right on through, you don't have to
Pay me nothing, just get on through"

Then we start picking up some steam

 DDsus4D
The driver shout on down the line to the man
Course he don't get what you're saying now going home
On the Rock Island Line

But he say:

 D
 I fooled you, I fooled you
I got pig iron, I got pig iron
I got aaalll pig iron

"Keep on goin' boy"
Down the Rock Island Line, yes yes, she's a mighty good road

 DA
 Well the Rock Island Line, she's a mighty good road
 DA
 Rock Island Line, she's the road to ride
 D
Yeah, the Rock Island Line, she's a mighty good road
 GD
And if you want to ride it you gotta ride it like you find it
 GAD
Get a ticket at the station on the Rock Island Line

Well I may be right, I may be wrong
I know you're gonna miss me when I'm gone

Well the Rock Island Line, she's a mighty good road
Rock Island Line, she's the road to ride
Yeah, the Rock Island Line, she's a mighty good road
And if you want to ride it you gotta ride it like you find it
Get a ticket at the station on the Rock Island Line

Well the Rock Island Line, she's a mighty good road
Rock Island Line, she's the road to ride
Yeah, the Rock Island Line, she's a mighty good road
And if you want to ride it you gotta ride it like you find it
Get a ticket at the station on the Rock Island Line

Well ABCWXYZ
The cat's in the cupboard but you don't see me

Well the Rock Island Line, she's a mighty good road
Rock Island Line, she's the road to ride
Yeah, the Rock Island Line, she's a mighty good road
And if you want to ride it you gotta ride it like you find it
Get a ticket at the station on the Rock Island Line

Well the good Lord's seen my sins
The good Lord's coming, gonna see me again

Well the Rock Island Line, she's a mighty good road
Rock Island Line, she's the road to ride
Yeah, the Rock Island Line, she's a mighty good road
And if you want to ride it you gotta ride it like you find it
Get a ticket at the station on the Rock Island Line

(sing very loud and insane like in this last verse)
Well the Rock Island Line, she's a mighty good road
Rock Island Line, she's the road to ride
Yeah, the Rock Island Line, she's a mighty good road
And if you want to ride it you gotta ride it like you find it
(last line is slower)
Get a ticket at the station on the Rock Island Line

Simple, eh?
