The Dummy Line Across the prairie on a streak of rust There's something moving in a cloud of dust It crawls into the valley with a wheeze and whine It's the two o'clock flyer on the Dummy Line Riding on the Dummy, on the Dummy Line Rain or shine, I'll pay my fine Rain or shine I'll pay my fine Riding on the Dummy, on the Dummy Line I saw a snail go whizzing past A guy said, my, this train is going fast Said I, Old man, that may be true But the question is, What's it fastened to? I said to the brakeman, can't you speed up a bit? Said he, You can walk, if you don't like it Said I, Old man, I'd take your dare But the folks don't expect me till the train gets there SOF
