Wreck Of The Old 97

Johnny Cash

 GC
They gave him his orders at Monroe Virginia
 GD
He said, "Steve your way behind the time.
 GC
This is not thirty eight this is old 97
 GDG
 pull her into Spencer on time".

 GC
He turned and he said to his black greasy fireman,
 GD
"Let's shovel on a little more coal
 GC
and when we cross that white oak mountain
 GDG
just watch old ninety seven roll."


 GC
It was a mighty rough road from Lynchburg to Danville
 GD
on a climb with a three mile grade.
 GC
It was on that grade that he lost his air brakes
 GDG
 You see what a jump he made.

 GC
He was goin' down the grade makin' ninety miles an hour
 GD
His whistle broke into a scream
 GC
He was found in that wreck with his hand on the throttle
 GDG
 scalded to death by the steam.

 GC
Well all you ladies, you'd better take this warnin'
 GD
from this time on and learn
 GC
Never speak harsh words to your true love or husband
 GDG
he may leave you and never return
