"I’ve Been Working On The Railroad" as written by and Traditional/brissette....
I've been working on the railroad
All the live long day
I've been working on the railroad
Just to pass the time away
Can't you hear the whistle blowing
Rise up so early in the morn
Can't you hear the whistle blowing
Dinah, blow your horn

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

Someone's in the kitchen with dinah
Someone's in the kitchen i know
Someone's in the kitchen with dinah
Strumming on the old banjo

Fee fie fiddle eell o
Fee fie fiddle eell o
Fee fie fiddle eell o
Strumming on the old banjo

Traditional

    General CommentSince it's a 1930's tune I doubt Denver wrote this or was the first to perform this little ditty. I love it, as most children did/do. Sometimes you just need those catchy innocent songs of childhood to put a smile on your face. This one does it for me:)
