The Wreck Of The Old 97 chords
Henry Work (music) / Lowell (words?)  
 
D GThey give him his orders at Monroe Virginia
D ASaying Steve you re way behind time
D GThis is not 38 but this is Old 97
D A DPut her in Spencer on time
GThen he looked around and said to his black greasy fireman
D AJust shovel on a little more coal
D GAnd when we cross that White Oak Mountain
D A DYou can watch Old 97 roll
GAnd when a telegram comes from Washington Station
D AAnd this is how it read
D GOh that brave engineers that run old 97
D A DIs lying in old Danville dead
GHe was going down grade making 90 miles an hour
D AWhen his whistle broke into a scream
D GHe was found in the wreck with his hand on the throttle
D A DAnd was scalded to death by the steam
GNow ladies you must take warning
D AFrom this time on and learn
D GNever speak harsh words to your true loving husband
D A DHe may leave you and never return
