Image
The Rock Island Line By:  Lonnie Donegan   Released:  1955 Genre: S kiffle   "Rock Island Line" is an American folk song about the Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific Railroad.  Clarence Wilson wrote the tune in 1929 for the Rock Island Colored Booster Quartet; a singing group made up of the rail line workers in Little Rock, Arkansas. The original verses described people and activities associated with the yard.  In 1934, folklorist and musicologist John A. Lomax  recorded   the song performed by the inmates of the Arkansas Cummins State Farm prison.  Lead Belly accompanied Lomax. In the 1940s, he rearranged the tune and made a phonograph record of it. A young English singer, Lonnie Donegan , imitated Leadbelly's version. It became the precursor of and impetus for the British rock & roll invasion. As such, his cover is listed among the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame's 500 Songs That Shaped Rock & Roll.
