Lyrics
[John sings first "Brown Eyed Handsome Man"]

John: Flying across the desert in a TWA,
      I saw a woman walking across the sand
      She been a-walkin' thirty miles en route to Bombay.
      To meet a brown eyed handsome man
      That's what the trouble was a brown eyed handsome man

      Way back in history three thousand years
      Back every since the world began
      There's been a whole lot of women just shedding tears
      About a brown eyed handsome man
      That's what the trouble was brown eyed handsome man

[John sings "Get Back" tune again]

      Jojo was a man who ??? she was a ??? and he ???
      Go go, Get back
      Go go, get back
      Go go, get back
      Go go, get back

[John now sings "Rock Island Line"]

Lyrics
This here's a story 'bout the Rock Island line
Now the Rock Island line runs down the rail to New Orleans to somewhere or other
Or other or somewehere

Well, the Rock Island line, she's a mighty good road
The Rock Island line, she's the road to ride
Yeah, the Rock Island line, she's a mighty good road
And if you want to ride it, you can ride it like you find it
Get your ticket at the station of the Rock Island line

Pretty girl along the line at the station
Lots of pig irons, horses and pigs and you know, elephants and all that kinda crap
Pretty hard to pick up a little bit of speed, you got a little bit of steam

Yeah, the Rock Island line, she's a mighty good road
The Rock Island line, she's the road to ride
Yeah, the Rock Island line, she's a mighty good road
And if you want to ride it, got to ride it like you find it
Get your ticket at the station of the Rock Island line

A-B-C, W-X-Y-Z, the cat's in the cupboard and you don't see me

Well, the Rock Island line, she's a mighty good road
The Rock Island line, she's the road to ride
Yeah, the Rock Island line, she's a mighty good road
And if you want to ride it, got to ride it like you find it
Get your ticket at the station of the Rock Island line

Well pretty soon we come to a what you call it stuck in the middle of a railway line
And this guy wants to look at and see what we're carrying on, a bit like custom procedures
So I was telling' 'em I unload all the stuff:
I got sheep, I got pigs
I got sheep, I got horses
I got cows, I got all live stock, got all life stock
Got all live stock, yes sir
Nothing but meats

So he says OK boy you can go on through, so I just go on through
And we pick up a little more of steam and a little more of speed
I fooled ya, I fooled ya
I got pig iron, I got pig iron
I got all pig iron

Well, the Rock Island line, she's a mighty good road
The Rock Island line, she's the road to ride
Yeah, the Rock Island line, she's a mighty good road
And if you want to ride it, got to ride it like you find it
Get your ticket at the station of the Rock Island line
