Casey Jones Come all you rounders If you want to hear The story of a brave engineer Casey Jones Was the rounders name On the big six wheeler Boys he made his fame Well the caller called Casey Bout half past four He kissed his wife At the station door He stepped into the cabin With the orders in his hand Said I'm gonna to take my trip To the promised land Casey Jones Stepped into the cabin Casey Jones Orders in his hand Casey Jones Stepped into the cabin Said I'm gonna to take my trip To the promised land He looked at the water and The water was low He looked at his watch His watch was slow He looked at the fireman The fire and said Boy were gonna reach Bristol But well all be dead Casey pulled up That Reno hill He blew at the crossing With an awful shrill The switchman knew By the engines moan That the man at the throttle Was Casey Jones Casey got to that certain place Old Number Nine Stared him straight in the face He said to the fireman Boy, you'd better jump Cause there are 2 locomotives And they're bound to bump Casey Jones Two locomotives Casey Jones And they're bound to bump Casey Jones Two locomotives Two locomotives And they're bound to bump Well, Mrs. Casey Jones She sat there on the bed She got the telegram That her poor husband was dead She said Go to bed children And hush your cryin' You got another poppa On the Salt Lake Line Casey Jones Got another poppa Casey Jones On the Salt Lake Line Casey Jones Got another poppa You got another poppa On the Salt Lake Line
