Capo I

Rock Island Line

Huddie Ledbetter/ Johnny Cash with his Hot and Blue Guitar (1957)

spoken
E
Now this here's a story about the Rock Island Line.
Well the Rock Island Line she runs down into New Orleans. 
There's a big tollgate down there and you know 
If you got certain things on board when you go through the tollgate 
Well you don't have to pay the man no toll. 
Well a train driver he pulled up to the tollgate 
And a man hollered and asked him what all he had on board and said: 
 
"I got livestock - I got livestock - I got cows, I got pigs 
I got sheep, I got mules - I got all live stock!" 
spoken
Well he said: "You're alright boy you don't have to pay no toll 
You can just go right on through!" So he went on through the tollgate. 
Faster
And as he went through he started pickin' up a little bit of speed 
Pickin' up a little bit of steam 
He got on through he turned and looked back at the man he said: 
 
"Well I fooled you - I fooled you - I got pigiron 
I got pigiron - I got old pigiron."

Down the Rock Island Line she's a mighty good road
B7 E
Rock Island Line it's the road to ride - Rock Island Line it's a mighty good road
Well if you ride it you got to ride it like you find it 
B7 E
Get your ticket at the station for the Rock Island Line
 
Looked cloudy in the west and it looked like rain - Round the curve came a passenger train. 
B7 E
North bound train on a southbound track - He's alright a leavin' but he won't be back.
Well the Rock Island Line she's a mighy good road 
Rock Island Line it's the road to ride - Rock Island Line is a mighty good road 
Well if you ride it you got to ride it like you find it 
Get your ticket at the station for the Rock Island Line. 
 
B7 E
Well I may be right and I may be wrong - But you're gonna miss me when I'm gone.
Well the engineer said before he died: There were two more drinks that he'd like to try! 
B7 E
The conductor said: what could they be - A hot cup of coffee and a cold glass of tea!
Well the Rock Island Line she's a mighty good road 
Rock Island Line is the road to ride - Rock Island Line is a mighty good road 
Well if you ride it you got to ride it like you find it 
Get your ticket at the station for The Rock Island Line
