Casey Jones  Johnny Cash

Key: F / Capo: 1 / Play: E
[E]Come all you rounders if you wanna hear
[E]A story about a [F#]brave engi[B7]neer
[E]Casey Jones was the roller's name
[E]On a sixty-eight wheeler course he [B7]rode to [E]fame
Caller called Casey 'bout a half past four
He kissed his wife at the station door
Climbed in the cabin with his orders in his hand
Said this is my trip to the Promised Land
CHORUS:
[E](Casey Jones) Climbed in the cabin
[E](Casey Jones) Orders in his [B7]hand
[E](Casey Jones) Leanin' out the window
[E]Takin' a trip to the [B7]Promised [E]Land
Through South Memphis yards on a fly
Rain been a-fallin' and the water was high
Everybody knew by the engine's moan
That the man at the throttle was Casey Jones
KEY CHANGE:
Key: Ab / Capo: 1 / Play: G
[G]Well Jones said Fireman don't you fret
[G]Sam Webb said I ain't a-[A]givin' up [D]yet
[G]We're eight hours late with the south-bound mail
[G]Be on time or we're [D]leavin' the [G]rails
REPEAT CHORUS
Dead on the rail was a passenger train
Blood was a-boilin' in Casey's brain
Casey said Hey look out ahead
Sam jump Sam jump or we'll all be dead
With a hand on the whistle and a hand on the brake
North Mississippi was wide awake
IC railroad officials said
He's a good engineer to be a-layin' dead
REPEAT CHORUS
KEY CHANGE:
Key: F / Capo: 1 / Play: E
Headaches and heartaches and all kinds of pain
Are all a part of the railroad train
Sweat and toil the good and the grand
Are part of the life on the railroad man
REPEAT CHORUS
