About In the Middle of the House

"In the Middle of the House" is a novelty song written by Bob Hilliard. It was performed by Vaughn Monroe and separately by Rusty Draper in 1956. Each was released as a single. Monroe's version reached number 11 on Billboard Magazine's Most Played by Jockeys chart and number 21 on the magazine's Top 100 chart in September 1956. Draper's version, released only weeks later, peaked lower on the Most Played by Jockeys chart, climbing to number 24. Draper outdid Monroe by one spot on the Top 100, peaking at number 20. The song was quite popular in the UK as it was covered by Alma Cogan (# 20), Jimmy Parkinson (# 20) and the Johnston Brothers (# 27). All versions were in the UK charts simultaneously in November 1956.

The railroad comes through the middle of the house 
The railroad comes through the middle of the house 
The trains all come through the middle of the house
Since the company bought the land

They let us live in the front of the house
They let us live in the back
But there ain't no livin' in the middle of the house
'Cause that's the railroad track

When a bill collector comes to the house
He knocks and bangs on the door
So we sit him right down in the middle of the house
And he never comes back no more

The railroad comes through the middle of the house 
The railroad comes through the middle of the house 
It comes and goes through the middle of the house
And the trains are all on time

Here comes the five-o-nine
singin' this song in the middle of the house

The railroad comes through the middle of the house
In and out of the middle of the house
Right smack dab through the middle of the house
Where the parlor used to be

There's a great big door in the front of the house
There's a little old door in the back 
But we can't have doors in the middle of the house
'Cause that's the railroad track

A relative came to visit the house
He liked to scream and fuss
So we sat him right down in the middle of the house
And he never more bothered us

The railroad comes through the middle of the house 
The railroad comes through the middle of the house 
It comes and goes through the middle of the house
Since the company bought the land.
