Wreck of the Old 97 lyrics:


Well they gave him his orders at Monroe, Virginia
Said: "Steve, you're way behind time. This is not 38, this is Ol' 97, put her into Spencer on time."
Then he turned around and said to his black greasy fireman, "Shovel on a little more coal. And when we cross that White Oak mountain, watch Ol' '97 roll."

[Guitar]

And then a telegram come from Washington station,
This is how it read:
"Oh that brave engineer that run ol 97, is lyin in old Danville dead."
'Cos he was going down a grade making 90 miles an hour,
The whistle broke into a scream.
He was found in the wreck with his hand on the throttle,
Scalded to death by the steam.
One more time!

[Guitar]

Oh, now all you ladies you'd better take a warning,
From this time on and learn.
Never speak harsh words to your true-lovin' husband.
He may leave you and never return.
Poor Boy.
