Casey Jones

Grateful Dead

 CF
 Drivin' that train, high on cocaine,
 C
Casey Jones you'd better watch your speed.
 F
Trouble ahead, trouble behind,
 C
And you know that notion just crossed my mind.

 CD
 This old engine makes it on time.
 FG
 Leaves central station at a quarter to nine.
 CD
 Hits River Junction at seventeen to,
 FE7AmG7
At a quarter to ten you know it's travelin' again.

CHORUS:

 CC#D
 Trouble ahead, a lady in red,
 FG
 Take my advice you'd be better off dead.
 CD
 Switch man sleepin', train a hundred and two
 FE7AmG7
Is on the wrong track and headed for you.

CHORUS

SOLO

(FOLLOW VERSE 1 FORMS)

Trouble with you is the trouble with me,
Got two good eyes but we still don't see.
Come 'round the bend you know it's the end,
'Cause the fireman screams and the engine just gleams.

REPEAT THE CHORUS WITH ORIGINAL CHORDS

 CBbF
 Drivin' that train, high on cocaine,
 C
Casey Jones you'd better watch your speed
 BbF
Trouble ahead, trouble behind
 C
And you know that notion just crossed my mind. 

 A7D7G7C
 And you know that notion just crossed my mind.
