I've Been Working On The Railroad

I've Been Working on the Railroad is an American folk song in the video Sing Out, America.

Lyrics

I've been working on the railroad,
All the live long day.
I've been working on the railroad,
Just to pass the time away.
Don't you hear the whistle blowing?
Rise up so early in the morn.
Can'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 ho-o-orn?
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-oh-oh-oh.
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.

Repeat 2nd half of First Stanza

Repeat Chorus

Strumming on the old banjo.
Strum-ming on the old...banjo...!
