Ive been working on the railroad,
all the live-long day.
Ive been working on the railroad,
to pass the time away.

Cant you hear the whistle blowing,
Wake up so early in the morn.
Can you here the whistle blowing,
Dinah, blow your horn.

Dinah, wont you blow
Dinah, wont you blow
Dinah, wont you blow, your horn, your horn.

Dinah, wont you blow
Dinah, wont you blow
Dinah, wont you blow your horn.

Theres someone in the kitchen with Dinah,
Theres someone in the kitchen I know, I know.
Theres someone in the kitchen with Dinah,
and hes strumming on the ole banjo.

Strumming, strumming.
Hes strumming on the o-ole banjo, banjo.
Stumming, strumming.
Hes strumming on the o-ole banjo.
