[Chorus]

C                          F
Driving that train, high on cocaine,
F                                                          C
Casey jones is ready, watch your speed.
C                      F
Trouble ahead, trouble behind,
F                                                                C
And you know that notion just crossed my mind.


[Verse]

C                       D
This old engine makes it on time,
F                                            G
Leaves central station ’bout a quarter to nine,
C                              D
Hits river junction at seventeen to,
       F                                          G
At a quarter to ten you know it’s travlin’ again.

C                      D
Trouble ahead, lady in red,
F                                     G
Take my advice you’d be better off dead.
C                                         D
Switchman’s sleeping, train hundred and two is
F                                    G
On the wrong track and headed for you.

C                                  D
Trouble with you is the trouble with me,
       F                                  G
Got two good eyes but you still don’t see.
C                                        D
Come round the bend, you know it’s the end,
       F                                     G
The fireman screams and the engine just gleams...


[Chorus]

C                          F
Driving that train, high on cocaine,
F                                                          C
Casey jones is ready, watch your speed.
C                      F
Trouble ahead, trouble behind,
F                                                                C
And you know that notion just crossed my mind.

the last line in the verse sounds good if you play it like this F E C G

Use an E7 chord instead in the end it'll sound even better, by E7 I just mean the E chord with an open D string
