Lyrics

Come all you rounders if you wanna hear the story about a brave engineer
Casey jones was the roller's name on a 68 wheeler course he won his fame
Caller called casey bout half past four. he kissed his wife at the station door
He climbed in the cabin with his orders in his hand
Said this is the trip to the promised land

Chorus
Casey jones climbed in the cabin casey jones orders in his hand
Casey jones leanin' out the window taking a trip to the promised 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
Well jones said, "fireman now don't you fret". sim webb said "we ain't a givin' up yet
We're eight hours late with the southbound mail
We'll be on time or we're leavin' the rails."
Casey jones climbed in the cabin..

Dead on the rail was a passenger train. blood was a boilin' in casey's brain
Casey said "hey now - look out ahead! jump, sim jump or we'll all be dead!"
With a hand on a whistle and a hand on a brake north mississippi was wide awake
The ic railroad official said, "he's a good engineer to be a laying dead."
Casey jones climbed in the cabin..

Headaches and heartaches and all kinds of pain are all the part of a railroad train
Sweat and toil, the good and the grand are part of the life of a railroad man
Casey jones climbed in the cabin..
