lyrics

We come from Drestown
and workin' on the levee.
All day we jumped up and down
and workin' on the levee.

I've been working on the railroad
all the live-long, all the live-long day.
I've been working on the railroad
just to pass the time away.

Can't you hear the whistle blow?
Rise up so early in the morn.
Can't you hear the captain shouting,
"O Dinah, blow your ...!"

I'm in the kitchen with Dinah
all the live-long, all the live-long day.
I'm in the kitchen with Dinah
just to cook the time away.

Can't you hear the whistle blow?
Rise up so early in the morn.
Can't you hear the captain shouting,
"O Dinah, blow your horn!"

Dinah, won't you blow,
Dinah, won't you blow,
Dinah, won't you blow your horn?
O Dinah, won't you blow your horn?

I've been working on the railroad
all the live-long, all the live-long day.
I've been working on the railroad
live-long day.
