Ben Dewberry's Final Run
Ben Dewberry was a brave engineer He told his fireman don't you ever fear All I want is the water and coal Put your head out the window, watch the drivers roll Watch the drivers roll watch the drivers roll Put your head out the window, watch the drivers Roll Ben Dewberry said before he died Two more roads that he wanted to ride His fireman asked him what could they be Said the old Northeastern and the A and B The A and B he said the A and B It's the old Northeastern and the A and B On the fatal morning it began to rain Around the curve come a passenger train Ben Dewberry was the engineer With the throttle wide open and without any fear He didn't have no fear he didn't have no fear He had her runnin' wide open without any fear Ben looked at his watch shook his head We may make Atlanta but we'll all be dead The train was flyin' by the troublin' switch Without any warning then she took the ditch Yea! she went in the ditch well, she took the ditch Without any warning then she took the ditch The big locomotive leaped from the rail Ben never lived to tell that awful tale His life was ended and his work was done When Ben Dewberry made his final run He made his final run he made his final run When Ben Dewberry made his final run
