Ben Dewberry's Final Run Recorded by Hank Snow Written by Andrew Jenkins
C Ben Dewberry was a brave engineer
He told his fireman don't you ever fear
All I want is the water and coal
Stick your head out the window watch the drivers roll F C Watch the drivers roll watch the drivers roll G7 C Stick your head out the window watch the drivers roll
Ben Dewberry said before he died
Two more roads that he wanted to ride
His fireman asked him what could they be
Said the old Northeastern and the A and B F C Said the A and B it's the A and B G7 C Said the old Northeastern it's the A and B
On the fatal morning it began to rain
Around the curve come a passenger train
Ben Dewberry was the engineer
With the throttle wide open and without any fear F C He didn't have no fear he didn't have no fear G7 C He had her running wide open without any fear
Ben looked at his watch shook his head
We may make Atlanta but we'll all be dead
The train was flying by the troubling switch
Without any warning then she took the ditch F C Yeah she went in the ditch well she took the ditch G7 C Without any warning then she took the ditch
Well the big locomotive leaped from the rail
Ben never lived to tell that awful tale
His life was ended and his work was done
When Ben Dewberry made his final run F C He made his final run he made his final run G7 C When Ben Dewberry made his final run
