Yeah, heard the diesel drumming all down the line
Oh, heard the wires a humming all down the line
Yeah, hear the women sighing all down the line
Oh, hear the children crying all down the line

(All down the line)
We'll be watching out for trouble, yeah
(All down the line)
And we keep the motor running, yeah
(All down the line)
Well, you can't say yes and you can't say no
Just be right there when the whistle blows
She's a sanctified girl with a sanctified mind to help me now

Yeah, all the people singing all down the line
Mmmm, watch the men all working, working, yeah

And we'll open up the throttle yeah

Bust another bottle, yeah

Need a shot of salvation, baby, once in a while
Hear the whistle blowing, hear it for a thousand miles

(All down the line)
We're gonna open up the throttle, yeah
(All down the line)
We're gonna bust bust bust another bottle, yeah

Won't you be my little baby for a while?
Won't you be my little baby for a while?
Won't you be my angel oh my darling girl
