Casey Jones Recorded by Johnny Cash Written by Lawrence Seibert and Ernie Newton
G Come all you rounders if you wanna hear C D7 The story about a brave engineer G Casey Jones was the roller's name D7 G On a 68 wheeler course he rode to fame
Caller called Casey bout half past four C D7 He kissed his wife at the station door G He climbed in the cabin with his orders in his hand D7 G Said this is the trip to the Promised Land
D7 Casey Jones climbed in the cabin G D7 Casey Jones orders in his hand G D7 Casey Jones leaning out the window G D7 G Making a trip to the Promised Land
Through South Memphis Yards on a fly C D7 Rain been a falling and the water was high G Everybody knew by the engine's moan D7 G That the man at the throttle was Casey Jones
Well Jones said fireman now don't you fret C D7 Sam Webb said we ain't a giving up yet G We're eight hours late with the southbound mail D7 G We'll be on time or we're leaving the rails
Dead on the rail was a passenger train C D7 Blood was a boiling in Casey's brain G Casey said hey now look out ahead D7 G Jump Sam jump or we'll all be dead
With a hand on a whistle and a hand on a brake C D7 North Mississippi was wide awake G I see railroad official said D7 G He's a good engineer to be a lying dead
Headaches and heartaches and all kinds of pain C D7 All the part of a railroad train G Sweat and toil the good and the grand D7 G Are part of the life of a railroad man
