Grateful Dead Casey Jones
Demo Lyrics & Pdf

Casey Jones was not intended to become a song but came along a bit at a time to Robert Hunter, who wrote it down a bit at a time. Jerry Garcia composed the music and the song appeared on their 1970 album "Working Man's Dead". The only single released from that album was Uncle John's Band.

Casey Jones Lyrics

Driving that train - high on cocaine - Casey Jones you better - watch your speed
Trouble ahead - trouble behind - and you know that notion just crossed my mind?

This old engine - makes it on time
Leaves Central Station ‘bout a quarter to nine’
Hits River Junction - at seventeen two
At a quarter to ten you know it's travelin' again

Driving that train - high on cocaine - Casey Jones you better - watch your speed
Trouble ahead - trouble behind - and you know that notion just crossed my mind?

Trouble ahead - a lady in red
Take my advice - you'd be better off dead!
Switchman's sleeping train - hundred and two is
On the wrong track and headed for you!

Driving that train - high on cocaine - Casey Jones you better - watch your speed
Trouble ahead - trouble behind - and you know that notion just crossed my mind?

Trouble with you is the trouble with me got
Two good eyes but you still don't see
Come round the bend you - know it's the end the
Fireman screams and the engine just gleams

Driving that train - high on cocaine - Casey Jones you better - watch your speed
Trouble ahead - trouble behind - and you know that notion just crossed my mind?

Driving that train - high on cocaine - Casey Jones you better - watch your speed
Trouble ahead - trouble behind - and you know that notion just crossed my mind?

And you know that notion - Just crossed my mind?
