Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Rock Island Line  Lonnie Donegan

I got sh[D]eep, 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

[D]        [Dsus4]                [D]             
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


[D]Well the Rock Island Line, she's a mighty goo[A]d road
[D]Rock Island Line, she's the road t[A]o ride
Yeah, the Ro[D]ck Island Line, she's a mighty good road
And if you [G]want to ride it you gotta [D]ride it like you find it
Get a [G]ticket at the station [A]on the [D]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?
