Wreck Of The Old 97-crd  Hank Snow

Subject: THE WRECK OF THE OLD 97 THE WRECK OF THE OLD 97 Recorded by Hank Snow Written by Charles Noell, Fred Lewey and Whitter/Work
[A] They give him his orders at [D] Monroe, Virginia, Sayin', [A] "Steve, you're way behind [E7] time This is [A] not 38, but it's Old [D] 97 You must [A] put her in [E7] Spencer on [A] time."
Then he look around and said to his black, greasy fireman "Just shovel on a little more coal And when we cross that White Oak Mountain You can watch Old 97 roll."
Fiddle break:
It's a mighty rough road from Lynchburg to Danville In a line on a three-mile grade It was on that grade that he lost his airbrakes Oh, you see what a jump he made.
Guitar break:
He was goin' down grade making 90 miles an hour When his whistle broke into a scream He was found in the wreck with his hand on the throttle And was scalded to death by the steam.
Fiddle break:
Now ladies, you must take warning >From this time on and learn Never speak harsh words to your true love or husband He may leave you and never return.
