Casey Jones

G G
Come all you rounders if you wanna hear
C C D7 D7
The story about a brave engineer
G G
Casey Jones was the roller's name
D7 D7 G G
On a 68 wheeler course he rode to fame


Caller called Casey bout half past four
C C D7 D7
He kissed his wife at the station door
G G
He climbed in the cabin with his orders in his hand
D7 D7 G G
Said this is the trip to the Promised Land

D7 D7
Casey Jones climbed in the cabin
G G D7 D7
Casey Jones orders in his hand
G G D7 D7
Casey Jones leaning out the window
G G D7 D7 G G
Making a trip to the Promised Land


Through South Memphis Yards on a fly
C C D7 D7
Rain been a falling and the water was high
G G
Everybody knew by the engine's moan
D7 D7 G G
That the man at the throttle was Casey Jones


Well Jones said fireman now don't you fret
C C D7 D7
Sam Webb said we ain't a giving up yet
G G
We're eight hours late with the southbound mail
D7 D7 G G
We'll be on time or we're leaving the rails

Repeat #3


Dead on the rail was a passenger train
C C D7 D7
Blood was a boiling in Casey's brain
G G
Casey said hey now look out ahead
D7 D7 G G
Jump Sam jump or we'll all be dead


With a hand on a whistle and a hand on a brake
C C D7 D7
North Mississippi was wide awake
G G
I see railroad official said
D7 D7 G G
He's a good engineer to be a lying dead

Repeat #3


Headaches and heartaches and all kinds of pain
C C D7 D7
All the part of a railroad train
G G
Sweat and toil the good and the grand
D7 D7 G G
Are part of the life of a railroad man

Repeat #3
