I’ve Been Working On the Railroad

From: The Legend

Lyrics

Down at the station
early in the mornin
see the little puffer bellies
all in a row
some folks go to work
and others take vacations
one took Melinda to
californi’O
Ohhh don’t go Melinda, please don’t go
you didn’t see the tea-cakes I brung ya from the fair

I’ve been working on the railroad
all the live long day
I’ve been working on the railroad
just to pass the time o’way
can’t you hear the whistle blowin’
rise up so early in the morn’
can’t you hear the captain shouting
“Dyna blow your horn”
Dyna won’t you blow
Dyna won’t you blow
Dyna won’t you blow your horn
Dyna won’t you blow
Dyna won’t you blow
Dyna won’t you blow your horn

Someone’s in the kitchen with Dyna
Someone’s in the kitchen I know
Someone’s in the kitchen with Dyna
Strumming on that old banjo
and singing

“fee fi fiddly I ohhh
fee fi fiddly I ohhh
fee fi fiddly D’I ohhh”
strumming on that old banjo
Some go to work
and others on vacation
One of ’em took Melinda
to Californi’O
