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
