Folk Song History
Some of the greatest American folk songs can be traced back to the building of the railroads. America's railroads were built primarily by African-Americans and immigrants, particularly Irish immigrants. It was grueling work and, was no doubt, made more tolerable by the presence of music.
"I've Been Working on the Railroad" may indeed be the best known folk song about the U.S. railway system. In this song, the telling line is "...all the livelong day." These men really did back-breaking work beyond the hours of labor now acceptable in our society.
