The Wreck Of The Number Nine Recorded by Jim Reeves Written by Carson Robison
G C One dark stormy night not a star was in sight G D7 The north wind came howlin' down the line G C There stood a brave engineer with his sweetheart so dear G D7 G And his orders to pull old Number Nine
D7 G She kissed him goodbye with a tear in her eye C G D7 But the joy in his heart he couldn't hide G C The whole world seemed bright for she told him that night G D7 G That tomorrow she'd be his blushing bride
C The wheels hummed a song as the train rolled along G D7 The black smoke came pouring from the stack G C The headlight agleam seemed to brighten his dream G D7 G Of tomorrow when he'd be going back
D7 G He sped around the hill and his brave heart stood still C G D7 Headlight was shinin' in his face G C He whispered a prayer as he threw on the air G D7 G For he knew this would be his final race
C In the wreck he was found lyin' there on the ground G D7 He asked them to raise his weary head G C His breath slowly went as this message he sent G D7 G To the maiden who thought she would be wed
D7 G There's a little white home that I built for our own C G D7 Where I dreamed we'd be happy you and I G C But I leave it to you for I know you'll be true G D7 G Till we meet at the golden gate goodbye
