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
[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: 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
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
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
