Let It Rock
In the heat of the day, down in mobile, alabama Workin' on the railroad with a steel drivin' hammer Tryin' to get some money, get some brand new shoes Tryin to find a lady, chase away my blues Hot and wasted lord sweatin' in the sun 'cause I'm not a foreman 'till my work is all done Later in the evening when the sun is sinking low I'll be out there waitin' for the whistle to blow Sittin' in the teepee smokin' out on the track Rollin' them bones (meaning dice) till my foreman get back Suddenly I hear the breakman up and shout There's a non-stop train comin' two miles out Everybody jumpin' and a scrambling around Tryin to get the line an get the teepee down Railroad owner's 'bout to go insane Tryin' to get the workers out the way of the train Here come the engineer honk his horn He got a non-stop train, we got to let it roll on!
