I've Been Working on the Railroad
Traditional / arr. Edmund J. Siennicki
Highland/Etling Strictly Strings
This song was very popular early in the 20th century. It is spirited and bouncy. Hooked bowing is used, along with other bowing. This occurs when the dotted eighth note is followed by a 16th note. The marked tempo can be changed, if desired. The tempo should be kept steady to the end. If a retard is desired for the last two measures -- OK!
