Product Details

Rock Island Line is an American blues/folk song first recorded by John Lomax in 1934 as sung by inmates in an Arkansas State Prison, and later popularized by Lead Belly.[1] Many versions have been recorded by other artists, most significantly the world-wide hit version in the mid-1950s by Lonnie Donegan. The song is ostensibly about the Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific Railroad. The chorus to the old song reads: The Rock Island Line is a mighty good road - The Rock Island Line is the road to ride - The Rock Island Line is a mighty good road - If you want to ride you gotta ride it like you find it - Get your ticket at the station for the Rock Island Line. The verses tell a humorous story about a train operator who smuggled pig iron through a toll gate by claiming all he had on board was livestock.
