[Verse 1]
          G                      C
Well they gave him his orders at Monroe, Virginia,
       G                        C
Said: "Steve, you're way behind time,
         G               C          
"This is not 38, this is Ol' 97,
 G            D          G
"Put her into Spencer on time."

[Verse 2]
        G                             C
Then he turned around and said to his black, greasy fireman,
 G                       C
"Shovel on a little more coal.
     G                  C
"And when we cross that White Oak mountain,
 G          D  G
"Watch Ol' '97 roll."

[Verse 3]
         G                    C
And then a telegram come from Washington station,
G              C
This is how it read:
         G                       C
"Oh that brave engineer that run ol 97,
 G              D        G
"Is lyin in old Danville dead."

[Verse 4]
         G                            C
'Cos he was going down a grade making 90 miles an hour,
G                        C
The whistle broke into a scream.
       G                           C
He was found in the wreck with his hand on the throttle,
 G         D            G
Scalded to death by the steam.

[Verse 5]
         G                   C
Oh, now all you ladies you'd better take a warning,
G                     C
From this time on and learn.
       G                       C
Never speak hard words to your true-lovin' husband.
 G                   D        G
He may leave you and never return, poor Boy.
