They gave him his orders at Monroe Vaginia
       F                         G
sayin' Steve your way behind the time
        F                        F
this is not thirty eight this is old 97
 F             G          F
 pull her into Spencer on time.

   F                         F
He turned and he said to his black greasy fireman
      F                       G
let's shovel on a little more coal
    F                  F
and when we cross that wide oak mountain
     F                G     F
just watch old ninety seven roll.

     F                       F
Was a mighty rough road from Lenburg to Danvill
      F                      G
on a climb with a three mile grade
        F                    F
it was on that grade that he lost his air brakes
F          G       F
see what a jump he made.

       F                            F
He was comin' down the grade makin' ninety miles an hour
    F                    G
his whistle broke into a scream
       F                           F
he was found in the wreck with his hand on the throttle
F          G            F
scolded to death by the steam

     F                  F
Well all you ladies had better take warnin'
     F                G
from this time on and learn
      F                         F
never speak harsh words to your true love or husband
        F            G       F
he may leave you and never return
