Part 1
I've been work -in' on the rail -road, All the live -long day.
I've been work -in' on the rail -road, Just to pass the time a -way.
Don't you hear the whis -tle blow -ing? Rise up so ear -ly in the morn!
Don't you hear the cap -tain shout -ing: "Di -nah, blow your horn"?
 
Part 2
Di -nah, won't you blow Di -nah, won't you blow Di -nah, won't you blow your horn, your horn?
Di -nah, won't you blow Di -nah, won't you blow Di -nah, won't you blow your horn?
 
Part 3
Some -one's in the kitch -en with Di -nah, Some -one's in the kitch -en, I know.
Some -one's in the kitch -en with Di -nah, Strum -ming on the old ban -jo.
 
Part 4
Fee fi, fid -dle -dee -i -o, Fee fi fid -dle -dee -i -o.
Fee fi fid -dle -dee -i -o, Strum -min' on the old ban -jo.
