Casey Jones (Union Version)

By Joe Hill
Rise Up Singing chapter: Work, p.254
Chords: A - / - B7E / A - / - EA ://

The workers on the S.P. line to strike sent out a call
But Casey Jones, the engineer, he wouldn't strike at all
His boiler it was leaking and its drivers on the bum
And his engine and his bearings they were all out of plumb

Casey Jones - kept his junkpile running
Casey Jones - was working double time
Casey Jones - got a wooden medal
For being good and faithful on the S.P. line

Industrial Workers of the World (Joe Hill was actively involved with them):
