[RIFF1]

[CHORUS]

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

[RIFF1]

[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          E7              Am          G
At a quarter to ten you know it’s travlin’ again.

[CHORUS]
C                          F
Driving that train, high on cocaine,
F                                     C
Casey Jones you better, watch your speed
C                      F
Trouble ahead, trouble behind,
F                                            C
And you know that notion just crossed my mind. 

[RIFF1]

[VERSE]
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          E7              Am          G
On the wrong track and headed for you.

[CHORUS] 
C                          F
Driving that train, high on cocaine,
F                                     C
Casey Jones you better, watch your speed
C                      F
Trouble ahead, trouble behind,
F                                            C
And you know that notion just crossed my mind.

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          E7              Am          G
The fireman screams and the engine just gleams...
