(F) Come all you rounder if you want to hear
The story about a (C) brave engi(F)neer
Casey Jones was the roller's name
On a (C) six feet of wheels across he won his (F) fame

Call about Casey about a half past four
He kissed his wife at the (C) station (F) door
Climb in the cabin with his orders in his hand
Said (C) this is my trip to the promised (F) land

Casey Jones (C) Climbed in the (F) cabin
Casey Jones (G7) orders in his hands
(F) Casey Jones (C) leanin' at the (F) window
Takin' the (C) trip to the promised (F) land 

Cruise at Memphis yards on a fly
Ring been a falling and the (C) water was (F) high
Everybody knew about the engine moan
That the (C) man at the throttle was Casey (F) Jones

(G) Jones said fireman now don't you fret
Sam well Sam I ain't (D) giving up (G) yet
With eight hours late with the southbound mail
We'll (D) be on time or we'll leaving the (G) rail

Casey Jones (D) Climbed in the (G) cabin
Casey Jones (A7) orders in his hands
(G) Casey Jones (D) leanin' at the (G) window
Takin' the (D) trip to the promised (G) land

Dead on the rails was a passenger train
Blood was falling in (D) Casey's (G) brain
Casey said hey now look at ahead
Jump Sam (D) jump or we'll all be (G) dead

(A) With a hand on the whistle and a hand on the brake
North Mississippi was (E) wide a(A)wake
I see railroad official said
He's a (E) good engineer to be a laying (A) dead

Casey Jones (E) Climbed in the (A) cabin
Casey Jones (B7) orders in his hands
(A) Casey Jones (E) leanin' at the (A) window
Takin' the (E) trip to the promised (A) land

(F) Headaches and heartaches and all kind of pain
All a part of a (C) railroad (F) train
The sweat and the toil the good and the ground
Part of a (C) life of a railroad (F) man

Casey Jones (C) Climbed in the (F) cabin
Casey Jones (G7) orders in his hands
(F) Casey Jones (C) leanin' at the (F) window
Takin' the (C) trip to the promised (F) land
