Hey Porter

by Johnny Cash

C
Hey porter hey porter would you tell me the time
G7
How much longer will it be till we cross that Mason Dixon line
C F
At daylight would you tell that engineer to slow it down
C G7 C
Or better still just stop the train cause I want to look around


Hey porter hey porter what time did you say
G7
How much longer will it be till I can see the light of day
C F
When we hit Dixie will you tell that engineer to ring his bell
C G7 C
And ask everybody that ain't asleep to stand right up and yell


Hey porter hey porter it's getting light outside
G7
This ole train is puffing smoke and I have to strain my eyes
C F
But ask that engineer if he will blow his whistle please
C G7 C
Cause I smell frost on cotton leaves and I feel that southern breeze


Hey porter hey porter please get my bags for me
G7
I need nobody to tell me now that we're in Tennessee
C F
Go tell that engineer to make that lonesome whistle scream
C G7 C
We're not so far from home so take it easy on the steam


Hey porter hey porter please open up the door
G7
When they stop the train I want to get off first cause I can't wait no more
C F
Tell that engineer I said thanks a lot and I didn't mind the fare
C G7 C
I'm gonna sat my feet on southern soil and breathe that southern air
