Wreck of the Old 97 - Carolyn Hester

They give him his orders

At Monroe Virginia

 

Sayin' "Steve you're way behind time

 

This is not Thirty-Eight

This is old Ninety-Seven

 

You must put her into Spencer on time"

 

He turned and said to

His black greasy fireman

 

"Shovel in a little more coal

 

And when we reach that white oak mountain

 

You can Watch old Ninety-Seven roll"

 

It's a mighty rough road

From Lynchburg to Danville

 

In a line on a three mile grade

 

It was on that grade that

He lost his airbrakes

 

You See what a jump he made

 

He was going down the grade

Makin' ninety miles an hour

His whistle broke into a scream

 

He was found in the wreck

With his hand on the throttle

 

A-scalded to death by the steam

 

So now all you ladies

You better take a-warnin'

From this time on and learn

 

Never speak harsh words

To your true lovin' husband

He may leave you and never return
