Let It Rock - Chuck Berry

Let It Rock

Chuck Berry

(Chuck Berry, Chess 1747, 1960)

In the heat of the day, down in Mobile, Alabama
Working on the railroad with a steal driving hammer
I gotta get some money, buy some brand-new shoes
Try to find somebody to take away these blues
She don't love me, hear me singing in the sun
Pay day coming when my work is all done
Well, in the evening, when the sun is sinking low
All day I've been waiting for the whistle to blow
A-sitting in a tee-pee, build right on the track
A-rollin' them bones till the foreman comes back
Pick up your belongings, boys, scattered about
We got an off-schedule train coming, two miles out
Yeah, everybody's scampering and jumping around
Picking up the money, tearing the tee-pee down
A foreman was in panic, about to go insane
Trying to get the workers outa the way of the train
Engineer blowing the whistle long and long
Can't stop the train, they have to let it roll on
Roll on
Roll on, oh
Roll on...
