lyrics

I always ride up on the roof on the Kettle Valley Line
I always ride up on the roof on the Kettle Valley Line
I always ride up on the roof
I’d pay my fare, but what’s the use
So I always ride up on the roof on the Kettle Valley Line

I order my meals through the ventilator on the Kettle Valley Line
I order my meals through the ventilator on the Kettle Valley Line
I order my meals through the ventilator
They taste no worse and saves tipping the waiter
I order my meals through the ventilator on the Kettle Valley Line

I buy a sandwich from the cook on the Kettle Valley Line
I buy a sandwich from the cook on the Kettle Valley Line
I buy a sandwich from the cook
He pockets my money, the dirty crook
I buy a sandwich from the cook on the Kettle Valley Line

The railroad bulls are gentlemen on the Kettle Valley Line
The railroad bulls are gentlemen on the Kettle Valley Line
The railroad bulls are gentlemen
We’ll never see their like again
The railroad bulls are gentlemen on the Kettle Valley Line

They tip their hats and call you Sir on the Kettle Valley Line
They tip their hats and call you Sir on the Kettle Valley Line
They tip their hats and call you Sir
Then chuck you into the local stir
But they tip their hats and call you Sir on the Kettle Valley Line
On the Kettle Valley Line
On the Kettle Valley Line
