Well, I'm an old pipeliner, I lay my line all day (Come on daddy lay your pipeline down)
Yes, I'm an old pipeliner and lay my line all day (Come on daddy lay your pipeline down)
I got forty-nine women waitin' to draw my pay (Wakka doo wakka doo wakka doo)

When you see me comin', better raise your window high (Raise it high)
When you see me comin', better raise those windows high (Raise it high)
And when you see me leavin', better hang your little head and cry (Lie-dee-die lie-dee-die lie-dee-die)

Goin' down to the river gonna take me a rockin' chair (rockin' chair)
Goin' down to the river gonna take me a rockin' chair (rockin' chair)
If the blues don't get me gonna rock away from here (rock away rock away rock away)

I'm an old pipeliner, I lay my line all day (Come on daddy lay your pipeline down)
I'm an old pipeliner and lay my line all day (Come on daddy lay your pipeline down)
I got forty-nine women waitin' to draw my pay (Wakka doo wakka doo wakka doo)

Gonna buy me an airplane, fly from town to town (from town to town)
Gonna buy me an airplane, fly from town to town (from town to town)
When I find my baby, gonna ease that airplane down (down-bee-down down-bee-down down-bee-down)

Eat my breakfast here, my supper in New Orleans (New Orleans)
Eat my breakfast here, my supper in New Orleans (New Orleans)
I'm gonna get me a gal that I ain't never seen (get a gal get a gal get a gal)

Well, I'm an old pipeliner, I lay my line all day (Come on daddy lay your pipeline down)
Yes, I'm an old pipeliner and lay my line all day (Come on daddy lay your pipeline down)
I got forty-nine women waitin' to draw my pay (Wakka doo wakka doo wakka doo)
