G chordG C chordC G chordG
Once upon a time there was an engineer
G chordG A chordA D chordD
Drove a locomotive both far and near
G chordG C chordC
Accompanied by a monkey who would sit on a stool
G chordG A chordA D chordD G chordG
Watchin' everything the engineer would move

One day the engineer wanted a bite to eat
Left the monkey sittin' on the driver's seat
The monkey pulled the draw the locomotive jumped the gun
And did ninety miles an hour down the main line run

G chordG C chordC G chordG
Big locomotive right on time
G chordG A chordA D chordD
Big locomotive comin' down the line
G chordG C chordC
Big locomotive number ninety-nine
G chordG A chordA D chordD G chordG
Left the engineer with a worried mind

The engineer called up the dispatcher on the phone
Tell him all about his locomotive was gone
Get on the wire switch operator to write
Cause the monkey's got the main line sewn up tight

Switch operator got the message in time
Said There's a north bound livin' on the same main line
Open up the switch I'm gonna let him through the hole
Cause the monkey's got the locomotive under control
