Like The 309

Johnny Cash

 A
It should be a while before I see dark to death
So it would sure be nice if I could get my breath

Well im not the crying nor the whining kind
Till I hear the whistle of the 309,

(Sung)
 DA
Of the 309, of the 309
 EA
Put me and my box on the 309
 A
 Take me to the depot

Put me to bed
 EA
Blow an electric fan on my knarly old head
 A
 Everybody take a look, see im doing fine
 EA
Then load my box on the 309
 DA
On the 309, on the 309
 EA
Put me and my box on the 309
 A
 Hey sweet baby kiss me hard
 EA
Draw my bath water Sweep my yard
 A
 Give a drink of my wine to my Jersey cow
 EA
I wouldn't give a hootin' hell for my journey now
 DA
On the 309, On the 309
 A
 I hear the sound of a railroad train
 EA
The whistle blows and Im gone again
 A
 It will take me higher than a Georgia pine
 EA
Stand back children its a 309
 DA
It's a 309, It's a 309
 EA
Put me and my box on a 309
 A
 A chicken in the pot, A turkey in the corn
 EA
I haven't felt this good since jubalee morn'
 A
 Talk about luck, well I got mine
 EA
Asthma comin' down like the 309
 A
 Write me a letter, sing me a song
 EA
Tell me all about it, what I did wrong

 A
 Meanwhile I will be doing fine
 EA
Then load my box on the 309
 DA
On the 309, On the 309
 EA
Gonna get outta here on the 309
