Verse:
Come all you rounders, if you want to hear,  A story 'bout a brave engineer.
Casey Jones was the rounder's name,  On a six eight wheeler, boys he won his fame.
The caller called Casey at a half past four,  Kissed his wife at the station door.
Moun -ted to the cab -in with his or- ders in his hand,  And he took his fare -well trip to that Promised Land.
 
Chorus:
Casey Jones,  mounted to the cabin.  Casey Jones,  With his orders in his hand.
Casey Jones,  mounted to the cabin,  And he took his farewell trip to the Promised Land.
Casey Jones,  mounted to the cabin.  Casey Jones,  With his orders in his hand.
Casey Jones mounted to the cabin,  And he took his farewell trip to the Promised Land.
