I've Been Workin' On The Railroad & Dinah
Traditional, based on an Irish Song
Approximate Publication, 1894


I've been work-in' on the rail-road
All the live-long day.
I've been work-in' on the rail-road,
To pass the time a-way.

Don't you hear the whis-tle blow-in',
Rise up so ear-ly in the morn.
Don't you hear the cap-tain shout-ing,
Di-nah, blow your horn!

Di-nah won't you blow,
Di-nah won't you blow,
Di-nah won't you blow your horn!
Di-nah won't you blow,
Din-ah won't you blow,
Di-nah won't you blow your horn!

Some-one's in the kitch-en with Di-nah,
Some-one's in the kitch-en I know, I know,
Some-one's in the kitch-en with Di-nah,
Strum-min' on the old ban-jo.

Fee-fie-fid-dle-dee-i-o,
Fee-fie-fid-dle-dee-i-o,
Fee-fie-fid-dle-dee-i-o,
Strum-min' on the old ban-jo.
