Casey Jones

Song Author Lawrence Seibert og Ernie Newton Performer: Johnny Cash Submitted by: Anonymous

[G]Come all you rounders if you wanna hear
The story about a [C]brave engi[D7]neer   
[G]Casey Jones was the roller's name
On a 68 wheeler course he [D7]rode to [G]fame


Caller called Casey bout half past four
He kissed his wife at the [C]station [D7]door   
He [G]climbed in the cabin with his orders in his hand
Said this is the trip to the [D7]Promised [G]Land

Casey Jones climbed in the [D7]cabin
[G]Casey Jones orders in his [D7]hand   
[G]Casey Jones leaning out the [D7]window
[G]Making a trip to the [D7]Promised [G]Land


Through South Memphis Yards on a fly
Rain been a falling and the [C]water was [D7]high   
[G]Everybody knew by the engine's moan
That the man at the throttle was [D7]Casey [G]Jones


Well Jones said fireman now don't you fret
Sam Webb said we ain't a [C]giving up [D7]yet   
We're [G]eight hours late with the southbound mail
We'll be on time or we're [D7]leaving the [G]rails

Casey Jones climbed in the [D7]cabin
[G]Casey Jones orders in his [D7]hand   
[G]Casey Jones leaning out the [D7]window
[G]Making a trip to the [D7]Promised [G]Land

Dead on the rail was a passenger train
Blood was a boiling in [C]Casey's [D7]brain
[G]Casey said hey now look out ahead
Jump Sam jump or [D7]we'll all [G]be dead


With a hand on a whistle and a hand on a brake
North Mississippi was [C]wide [D7]awake
[G]I see railroad official said
He's a good engineer to be a [D7]lying [G]dead

Casey Jones climbed in the [D7]cabin
[G]Casey Jones orders in his [D7]hand   
[G]Casey Jones leaning out the [D7]window
[G]Making a trip to the [D7]Promised [G]Land

Headaches and heartaches and all kinds of pain
All the part of a [C]railroad [D7]train
[G]Sweat and toil the good and the grand
Are part of the life of a [D7]railroad [G]man  

Casey Jones climbed in the [D7]cabin
[G]Casey Jones orders in his [D7]hand   
[G]Casey Jones leaning out the [D7]window
[G]Making a trip to the [D7]Promised [G]Land


Come all you rounders if you wanna hear
The story about a brave engineer
Casey Jones was the roller's name
On a 68 wheeler course he rode to fame

Caller called Casey bout half past four
He kissed his wife at the station door
He climbed in the cabin with his orders in his hand
Said this is the trip to the Promised Land

Casey Jones climbed in the cabin
Casey Jones orders in his hand
Casey Jones leaning out the window
Making a trip to the Promised Land

Through South Memphis Yards on a fly
Rain been a falling and the water was high
Everybody knew by the engine's moan
That the man at the throttle was Casey Jones

Well Jones said fireman now don't you fret
Sam Webb said we ain't a giving up yet
We're eight hours late with the southbound mail
We'll be on time or we're leaving the rails

Casey Jones climbed in the cabin
Casey Jones orders in his hand
Casey Jones leaning out the window
Making a trip to the Promised Land

Dead on the rail was a passenger train
Blood was a boiling in Casey's brain
Casey said hey now look out ahead
Jump Sam jump or we'll all be dead

With a hand on a whistle and a hand on a brake
North Mississippi was wide awake
I see railroad official said
He's a good engineer to be a lying dead

Casey Jones climbed in the cabin
Casey Jones orders in his hand
Casey Jones leaning out the window
Making a trip to the Promised Land

Headaches and heartaches and all kinds of pain
All the part of a railroad train
Sweat and toil the good and the grand
Are part of the life of a railroad man

Casey Jones climbed in the cabin
Casey Jones orders in his hand
Casey Jones leaning out the window
Making a trip to the Promised Land
