Chuck Berry)
In the heat of the day down in Mobile, Alabama,
Working on the railroad with the steel driving hammer.
Gotta get some money to buy some brand new shoes,
Try find somebody take away these blues.
"She don't love me" hear me singing in the sun,
Payday's comin' and my work is all done.

Later in the evening, when the sun is sinking low,
All day I been waiting for the whistle to blow.
Sitting in a teepee built right on the track,
Rolling them bones 'til the foreman comes back.
Pick up you belongings boys and scatter about,
We've got an off-schedule train comin' two miles out.

Everybody's scrambling and running around,
Picking up their money, tearin' the teepee down.
Foreman wants to panic, 'bout to go insane,
Trying to get the workers out the way of the train.
Engineer blownin' the whistle loud and long,
Can't stop the train, we gotta let it roll on.
