CARTER FAMILY


Engine 143 Lyrics

Along came the F15 the swiftest on the line
Running o'er the C&O road just twenty minutes behind
Running into Cevile head porters on the line
Receiving their strict orders from a station just
behind

Georgie's mother came to him with a bucket on her arm
Saying my darling son be careful how you run
For many a man has lost his life in trying to make lost
time
And if you run your engine right you'll get there just
on time

Up the road he darted against the rocks he crushed
Upside down the engine turned and Georgie's breast did
smash
His head was against the firebox door the flames are
rolling high
I'm glad I was born for an engineer to die on the C&O
road

The doctor said to Georgie my darling boy be still
Your life may yet be saved if it is God's blessed will
Oh no said George that will not do I want to die so
free
I want to die for the engine I love one hundred and
forty three

The doctor said to Georgie your life cannot be saved
Murdered upon a railroad and laid in a lonesome grave
His face was covered up with blood his eyes they could
not see
And the very last words poor Georgie said was nearer my
God to thee
