Train a come a whistlin'
Hoo Hoo Who's a gonna ride me to Memphis Town
I'm a gonna ride on You Hoo
You're a gonna take me all around

Chug-a-chug chuggin'
The coal that we're luggin'
The train wheel's are huggin'
That railroad track
To my gal Dinah
There's no way finer
So take me to China
Then bring me back

I had a nickel I wanted to spend me
On a record of gold or platinum
Instead I just bought 5 shiny pennies
To put down on the track and flatten 'em

I'm just a singin'
My banjo's a ringin'
Most outta tune thing in
This one-man band
The wind is the engineer
I am the pioneer
Life is the souvenir
For travelin' the land
