Freight Train Boogie

Lyrics: Alton Delmore ['Jim Scott'], Rabon Delmore ['Bob Nobar']
Music: Alton Delmore ['Jim Scott'], Rabon Delmore ['Bob Nobar']

Casey Jones he was a mighty man
But now he's resting in the promised land
The kind of music you can understand
Was an eight wheel driver under his command

He made the freight train boogie
All the time
He made the freight train boogie
As he rolled down the line

He made the freight train boogie
All the time
He made the freight train boogie
As he rolled down the line

He woke up the people all along the line
Oh how the boy can make a whistle whine
He said to the fireman, get a hold of you seat
I'm gonna make this ride to the boogie beat

He made the freight train boogie
All the time
He made the freight train boogie
As he rolled down the line

He made the freight train boogie
All the time
He made the freight train boogie
As he rolled down the line

When the fireman started to ring the bell
Everybody hung around to tell
Casey Jones was a coming to town
On a six-eight wheeler that was flat on the ground

He made the freight train boogie
All the time
He made the freight train boogie
As he rolled down the line

He made the freight train boogie
All the time
He made the freight train boogie
As he rolled down the line
