Let It Rock
Chuck Berry Lyrics


In the heat of the day down in Mobile Alabama
Working on the railroad with the steel driving hammer
I gotta get some money to buy some brand new shoes
Tryin' to find somebody to take away these blues
"She don't love me" hear them singing in the sun
Payday's coming and my work is all done

Well, in the evening when the sun is sinking low
All day I been waiting for the whistle to blow
Sitting in a tee pee built right on the tracks
Rolling them bones until 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, running around
Picking up their money, tearing the tee pee down
Foreman wants to panic, 'bout to go insane
Trying to get the workers out the way of the train
Engineer blows the whistle loud and long
Can't stop the train, have to let it roll on

In the evening of the day down in Mobile, Alabama,
Working on the railroad with the steel driving hammer.

Gotta get some money, buy some brand new shoes,

Gotta find somebody, got to lose these blues.

"She don't love me" hear me singing in the sun,

She better leave me 'til my work is all done.

In the evening of the day, when the sun is sinking low,

All day I been waiting for the whistle to blow.

Sitting in a teepee built out on the track,

Rolling 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, take the teepee down.

Foreman wants to panic, 'bout to go insane,

Trying to get the workers out the way of the train.

Engineer blowin' his whistle loud and long,

He can't stop the train, gotta let it roll on.
