"Hey Porter" as written by and Johnny R. Cash....
(C) Hey, Porter, Hey Porter! Would you tell me the (F) time?
(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,
