     Note: the uploaded file has a [C7] thrown in just for interest!

    Silly little train song that dates back to the late 1800's, Some of the original verses were adult content and/or not PC, all of which are now gone and replaced with new tamer verses and added melodies ... Makes me feel happy.

    I’ve Been Working On The Railroad   Traditional

     

    [C] I've been workin' on the railroad [F] all the live long [C] day
    [C] I've been workin' on the railroad, just to [D7] pass the time a-[G7]way
    [G7] Can't you hear the whistle [C] blow-[C7]in'?  [F] Rise up so early in the [E7] morn
    [F] Can't you hear the captain [C] shoutin'? "Dinah [G7] blow your [C] horn!"

     

    [C] Dinah won't you [C7] blow, [F] Dinah won't you [D7] blow
    [G7] Dinah won't you blow your [C] horn
    [C] Dinah won't you [C7] blow, [F] Dinah won't you [D7] blow
    [G7] Dinah won't you blow your [C] horn

     

    [C] Someone's in the kitchen with Dinah
    [C] Someone's in the kitchen I [G7] know
    [C] Someone's in the [C7] kitchen with [F] Dinah
    [G7] Strummin' on the old ban-[C]jo...and [G7] singin'

     

    [C] Fee fie fiddle-di-i-o, fee fie fiddle-di-i-[G7]o-o-o-o,
    [C] Fee [C7] fie [F] fiddle-di--i-oooooo
    [G7] Strummin' on the old ban-[C]jo

Hi Claude,

I've uploaded the print version that we had already printed out and had in our files (for Saunders, OFF, etc.) - it's the same chords except for an added [C7] - and some of the chord placements are a bit different.
