“Hey Porter” – Classic Johnny Cash Performance

In this clip taken from the 1980 TV special “Johnny Cash: The First 25 Years,” Johnny Cash, along with his band, performs the railroading song “Hey Porter”.

Hey porter! Hey porter!
Would you tell me the time?
How much longer will it be till we cross
that Mason Dixon Line?
At daylight would ya tell that engineer
to slow it down?
Or better still, just stop the train,
Cause I wanna look around.
