Talking Casey Lyrics

TALKIN' CASEY (open E tuning)
(from the Oberlin College Concert) E throughout...

Casey, Casey Don't leave me here
Casey Jones Please don't leave me here

Little chidren commenced callin' cryin', Daddy, don't
leave me here. He could not stand this.

Daddy, Daddy, don't leave me here

He couldn't stand that. he told the fireman, said
Get the bell, let's go.

I heard the bell, somethin' like this...

Shortly after that, he's gone. I heard the drive wheel
jump the joints.
'Bout time he got switched 'n' runnin' he run up on
some sheep.

Blowed for 'em to get off the tracks but they wouldn't
get off. He had to stop his train.

Blowin' somethin' like this...
I heard him when he's cuttin' down 'fore he stopped.

Made him sort of mad when he had to stop his train,
then he got behind time a little bit. Commenced
cussin', here's what he said.

After that I heard him. he was runnin' so fast looked
like them drive wheels 'bout to catch up with them
litte truck wheels.

People all got scared, though it was gonna make a
wreck, which it did.
One lady commenced singin' Lord have mercy, save me

Well Lord, have mercy.
Lord, have mercy
Lord, have mercy
Save me Lord

Lord don't leave me
Lord don't leave me
Oh Lord don't leave me
Save me Lord
