Eddy Arnold Casey Jones (the Brave Engineer) Lyrics

Last updated: 02/15/2005 10:00:00 AM

Come all you rounders if you wanna hear
The story bout a brave engineer
Casey Jones was the rounder's name
On a 68 wheeler boys he won his fame
The caller called Casey at a half past four
He kissed his wife at the station door
Mounted to the cabin with his orders in his hand
And it took his final trip to the Promised Land

Casye Jones mounted to the cabin
Casey Jones with the orders in his hand
Casye Jones mounted to the cabin
And it took his final trip to the Promised Land

Put in your water and shovel your coal
Put your head out the window watch the drivers roll
I'll run her till she leaves the rails
Cause I made hours late with the western mail
He looked at his watch but the watch was slow
He looked at the water and the water was low
He looked at the fireman and then he said
We're gonna reach Frisco Buffalo'd be dead

Casey Jones gonna reach Frisco
Casey Jones Buffalo'd be dead
Casey Jones we're gonna reach Frisco
We're gonna reach Frisco Buffalo'd be dead

Casey pulled up that Reno hill
He whistled for the crossing with an awful shrill
The switchman knew by the engine's moan
That the man at the throttle was Casey Jones
He pulled up within two miles of the place
There number four stared him straight in the face
He turned to his fireman said boy you'd better jump
Cause there's two locomotives that are going to bump

Casey Jones two locomotives
Casey Jones that's going to bump
Casey Jones two locomotives
There's two locomotives that's going to bump

Casey said just before he died
There're two more roads that I'd like to ride
The fireman said would that be
The Northern Pacific and the Santa Fe
Mrs Jones sat at on her bed a sighin'
Just to see the message that Casey was dyin'
Go to bed children and stop your cryin'
Cause daddy's still a ridin' that heavenly line

Casye Jones mounted to the cabin
Casey Jones with the orders in his hand
Casye Jones mounted to the cabin
And it took his final trip to the Promised Land
