I’ve Been Working On The Railroad

Original Lyrics

I’ve been workin’ on the railroad,
All the live long day
I’ve been workin’ on the railroad,
Just to pass the time away
Don’t you hear the whistle blowing?
Rise up so early in the morn
Don’t you hear the captain shouting
“Dinah, blow your horn?”
Dinah, won’t you blow,
Dinah, won’t you blow,
Dinah, won’t you blow your horn?
Dinah, won’t you blow,
Dinah, won’t you blow,
Dinah, won’t you blow your horn?
Someone’s in the kitchen with Dinah
Someone’s in the kitchen, I know
Someone’s in the kitchen with Dinah
Strumming on the old banjo
Fee, fie, fiddle-e-i-o
Fee, fie, fiddle-e-i-o-o-o-o
Fee, fie, fiddle-e-i-o
Strumming on the old banjo
