(C) How much longer will it be 'til we cross that (G) Mason Dixon Line? (C)
At daylight would you tell the engineer to slow it (F) down;
Or better still, just stop the train 'cause I (G) want to look a (C) round.
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 would ya tell the engineer to ring his bell;
And tell everybody that ain't asleep to stand right up and yell.
Hey, Porter! Hey, Porter! Please, go on and get my bags for me,
I don't need nobody to tell me now that I'm in Tennessee.
We're not so far from home, you know, and it's a-getting light outside
This old train is a-puffin' smoke and I have to strain in my eyes
Hey Porter! Hey Porter! Please open up the door.
When they stop this train I'm gonna get off first 'cause I can't wait no more.
Tell the engineer I say,
