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
