Casey Jones Was His Name 
recorded by Hank Snow
written by Don Gibson

G
A long time ago in a town in Tennessee
A7 D7
There lived a man and he was great as he could be
G C
By the sweat of his brow he earned fortune and fame
D7 G
Casey Jones was his name


From Memphis Tennessee on that Cannonball Express
A7 D7
By the wining of the whistle you could tell him from the rest
G C
Past the old plantations with their cotton and cane
D7 G
Casey Jones was his name


Clickety-clack clickety-clack over the rails he'd go
A7 D7
Clickety-clack clickety-clack braving rain and snow
G C
Everyone knew three-eighty two was his train
D7 G
Casey Jones was his name


Running late through Sardis past Winona on the fly
A7 D7
Like lightning chasing thunder through the stairways of the sky
G C
When we heard his engine moaning and the story is claimed
D7 G
Casey Jones was his name


Then on that fatal night he made his final run
A7 D7
Near Vaughan Mississippi he knew his time had come
G C
Too late he saw the head of an old freight train
D7 G
Now a legend Casey Jones was his name

Repeat #3
