Hey Porter

by Johnny Cash

Hey porter hey porter would you tell me the time
How much longer will it be till we cross that Mason Dixon line
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
How much longer will it be till I can see the light of day
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
This ole train is puffing smoke and I have to strain my eyes
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
I need nobody to tell me now that we're in Tennessee
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
When they stop the train I want to get off first cause I can't wait no more
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
