INTRO E E E E
Hey,Porter,Hey Porter! Would you tell me the time?
How much longer will it be 'til we cross that [F#7]Mason Dixon [B7]Line?
At d[E]aylight will you tell that engineer to slow it [A]down;
Or better still, just [E]stop the train 'c[B7]ause I want to look a[E]round.
Hey, Porter! Hey Porter! What time did you say?
How much longer will it be 'till I can see the [F#7]light of [B7]day?
When [E]we hit Dixie will you tell that engineer to ring his b[A]ell;
And ask everybody that a[E]in't asleep to s[B7]tand rightup and y[E]ell.

[E]Hey, Porter! Hey Porter! It's getting light outside.
This old train is puffin' smoke and I [F#7]have to strain my [B7]eyes.
But a[E]sk that engineer if he will blow his whistle p[A]lease,
Cause I smell frost on c[E]otton leaves, and I [B7]feel that Southern [E]breeze.
Hey, Porter! Hey, Porter! Please get my bags for me,
I need nobody to tell me now that [F#7]we're in Tennes[B7]see
Go t[E]ell that engineer to make that lonesome whistle s[A]cream.
We're not so far from ho[E]me so take it [B7]easy on the s[E]team
SOLO 2 E E E E E E F#7 B7 E E E A A E B7 E
[E]Hey Porter! Hey Porter! Please open up my door
When they stop this train I'm gonna get off first
cause [F#7]I can't wait no [B7]more.
Tell that e[E]ngineer I say, "Thanks a lot. I didn't mind the f[A]are
I'm gonna s[E]et my feet on Southern soil and [B7]breathe that Southern a[E]ir."
