    Lyrics

    Now this here's the story about the Rock Island Line
    Now the Rock Island Line she run down into New Orleans
    Just before you get into New Orleans why they got a big toll gate
    Where you gotta pay the man just so much
    Course, if you got certain things on board you're okay
    You don't have to pay the man nothin'.

    Right now we see a train she pull into the station
    The man he stick his head out the window
    And he yelled down at the man
    I got pigs, I got horses, I got cows
    I got sheep, I got all livestock, I got all livestock
    I got all livestock.

    The man say, boy you okay
    You go on through, you don't have to pay nothin'
    So the man he go on through
    The train get on down away from the station a little bit
    Why he started pickin' up a little bit of steam
    He started pickin' up a little bit of speed.

    The driver think he safely out of sight
    Of the man so he stick his head out of the window
    And he yelled back down the line at the man
    Well, I fooled you, I fooled you
    I got pig iron, I got pig iron
    I got all pig iron, (hey, hey.)

    Now I'll tell you where I'm goin' boy
    Down the Rock Island Line she's a mighty good road
    The Rock Island Line is the road to ride
    The Rock Island Line she's a mighty good road
    If you ride you gotta ride her like you find her
    Get your ticket at the station for the Rock Island Line.

    The cat's on the cover but he don't see me
    Down the Rock Island Line she's a mighty good road
    The Rock Island Line is the road to ride
    The Rock Island Line she's a mighty good road
    If you ride you gotta ride her like you find her
    Get your ticket at the station for the Rock Island Line.

    Well, I may be right, I maybe wrong
    You're gonna miss me when I'm gone
    Down the Rock Island Line she's a mighty good road
    The Rock Island Line is the road to ride
    The Rock Island Line she's a mighty good road
    If you ride you gotta ride her like you find her
    Get your ticket at the station for the Rock Island Line.

    Down the Rock Island Line she's a mighty good road
    The Rock Island Line is the road to ride
    The Rock Island Line she's a mighty good road
    If you ride you gotta ride her like you find her
    Get your ticket at the station for the Rock Island Line...
