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

Repeat #3


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

Repeat #3


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

Repeat #3
