Casey Jones  Grateful Dead

[C]Driving that train, H[F]igh on cocaine

[F]Casey Jones you'd better, w[F]atch your speed
[C]Trouble ahead, T[F]rouble behind
[F]And you know that notio[C]n, just crossed my mind    [C]     [F]
Verse 1:

[C]This old engine, [D]makes it on time

[F]Leaves Central Station 'bout a q[G]uarter to nine
[C]Hits River J[G]uction, at [D]seventeen-to
At a q[F]uarter to t[E7]en you know it's t[Am]rav'lin' ag[G]ain

Verse 2:

[C]Trouble ahead, [C/A#]the   l[D]ady in red

[F]Take my advice, you'd be [G]better off dead
[C]                              [D]                                                                                                                     
Switch-Man's sleeping, Train Hundred-and-Two is

[F]On the wrong t[E7]rack and h[Am]eaded for y[G]ou

Solo 1 - C D F G (one bar each) then F E7 Am G (half bar each)

Solo 2 - C F (one bar) F (1 and a half) C (1 and a half) F to the end

[C]   [F]                                  
Verse 3:

[C]Trouble with you is T[D]rouble with me, Got

[F]Two good eyes but s[G]till don't see
[C]Come round the bend, you k[D]now it's the end,
The f[F]ireman s[E7]creams and the e[Am]ngine just g[G]leams
(Chorus twice)

then the chorus with C Bb (half bar) F (that half plus another one and half)

C (half plus whole bar) Bb (half bar) F (half bar plus TWO whole)

Bb (half) F (half plus one and half) C (half plus one)

Bb (half) F (half plus TWO)

and then:

[A7]And you know that n[D]otion j[G7]ust crossed my m[C]ind

Explanation on the bar-half bar bit:

This song's structure is simple - it's a 4/4 beat

so when I say whole bar I mean four beats, and when I say half bar I mean two beats. Just tap them with your feet.

That's it!!!!
